Christine BETIA


Born in Calamba City, Philippines, my family lived in at least five different cities in the Philippines. In 2006, I completed my bachelor degree in Agricultural Economics with Honors from the University of the Philippines Los Baños, Laguna (UPLB). Currently, I am an Economic Development Specialist in the Philippine's National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) since 2008 - where my main responsibilities are to provide technical capacity to our regional and local government counterparts specifically in the field of agriculture, environment, economics, statistics, and disaster risk reduction. I am accepted in the Mundus Urbano Master Program 2011-2013. This double masters program provided me wide and global spectrum on International Cooperation and Urban Development from the Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany.
