1999-2002 - UK, Kosovo: Country Manager, MapAction

Rupert founded MapAction as a result of a mapping project in the Kosovo in Dec ‘99. As Country Manager, on iron rations, he set up a local team, and made maps of small business re-start activities, to help post-conflict reconstruction. These served as demonstration maps at the charity launch in April 20021. Rupert also developed his concept and rationale of gap-analysis for sustainable job creation.
