Biography

Gonne Beekman is a behavioural economist at Wageningen Economic Research. Gonnes research focuses on the role behaviour drivers in transition processes within global food systems. Gonne is also specialized in impact evaluations of development interventions – mainly in low and middle income countries.

Currently, Gonne is involved in multiple research projects on transition processes worldwide. She conducts impact evaluation projects in the domains of nutrition and sustainable rural development in international, multidisciplinary research teams, among others commissioned by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, DFID, and Rainforest Alliance.
