Manas Puri works with FAO as an expert on the use of sustainable energy in agriculture. He is an experienced sustainable energy professional and has several years of experience in analyzing and deploying sustainable energy solutions across food value chains.
Manas is keenly interested in using clean energy technologies to increase agricultural productivity by modernizing the food value chain to be more efficient and reducing food losses caused by a lack of cooling and processing infrastructure. He holds a bachelor's degree in Physics and a PhD in Economics.
After finishing his PhD, he joined FAO’s Climate and Environment division and has since supported several countries in Africa, Asia and the Near East in developing evidence-based energy and agriculture policies that can support the countries' transition to a low carbon, sustainable agriculture sector.
