Dr. Orna Rosenfeld is a devoted professional who, thanks to her education and background, has a thorough insight into how various policies and decision-making influence the accessibility of housing and urban policies. In her recent contribution to the concept of just transition in Brussels in November 2022, Orna brought a specific global view to European policymaking on the transformation of places and just transition. She is skilled, inspirational, creative and able to bring the right perspective. I highly recommend working with her.
