Christian Rogg

I am Head of DFID DRC. With an annual budget of £150 million and 50 staff, our office leads the British Government’s ambitious programme to reduce poverty, foster sustainable development and mitigate conflict in the DRC. I joined DFID as a private sector adviser in 1999 and subsequently led the Growth Team in DFID's Policy Division in London before taking up leadership positions in DFID’s offices in Nigeria, Vietnam and Ghana. I started my career in banking in Germany and also worked as an economic development consultant to the World Bank, the US Government and the Inter-American Development Bank. I was educated in Germany, the US, Spain and the UK. I hold a PhD/DPhil in economics from the University of Oxford. I am married with three children.
