Episode 60: Investing in Urban Improvement with Jonas Parby

Greetings Glocal Citizens!

This week's guest is my first "World Banker." Born and raised in Denmark and currently based in Nepal, Jonas Ingemann Parby is a Senior Urban Specialist in the South Asia Region with the World Bank. Jonas has led and worked on lending operations and analytical products in more than 20 countries across Latin America, Africa, South East Asia, and South Asia. His expertise focuses on local governance and decentralization, urban resilience, municipal finance, and housing. Before joining the World Bank Group, Jonas served as Adviser at DANIDA (Danish Agency for Development Assistance) and worked for several international NGOs. Prior to relocating to Nepal with his wife and daughter, Jonas lived and worked in the United States, Cambodia, Thailand, Uganda, and Peru. Fluent in five languages, Jonas also has a particular fluency in nature where he finds the best kinds of mindset hacks through his global and local adventures. In this conversation we learn quite a bit about the project development process at the World Bank and some of the solution-scaping activities that Jonas has been involved in implementing.
