AIT alumna selected “Manila 40 Under 40’ awardee

An alumna of the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Ms. Kathlyn Kissy Sumaylo has been selected by Devex for the “Manila 40 Under 40’ award for her work in international development. She was honored on 19 February 2013 at the Zuellig Building, Makati City, The Philippines.

Ms. Kathlyn has been selected for her work in the field of disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation. The citation mentions how she became interested in disaster risk reduction when she was a graduate student at the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT). She became acquainted not only with different regional initiatives on community-based disaster risk management but also with ecosystem practices in the Mekong region during her field exposure as well as research assignment at the Asian Disaster Preparedness Center in Bangkok, the citation adds. Ms. Kathylyn graduated with a Master’s in Gender and Development Studies (GDS) from AIT in 2008.

The Devex ‘40 Under 40’ award highlights the work of 40 young leaders in the international development community under the age of 40. The election process includes a public nomination process and review of over 250 nominees. Awardees are selected on the basis of their influence on the development agenda, and the impact on development results in the Philippines and abroad. Following the holding of 40 Under 40 events in London in 2011, and in Washington, D.C. in 2010, Devex has selected the Philippines as the first emerging country to host the event.
