Jarrett Basedow

Regional Director - Issara Institute


Jarrett Basedow's 15-year career in international development has focused on economic response, recovery, and development, including cash and markets, livelihoods and employment, incorporating protection and gender standards into humanitarian economic response, and assessment and learning. Jarrett began his career in the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor, and he went on to work for the American Red Cross, International Rescue Committee, Mercy Corps, and IREX in Lebanon, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Jordan, and Kenya (as well as US headquarter posts) providing strategic direction, direct management, and technical and financial oversight to programs serving mobile and vulnerable populations. In line with Issara’s programs, some of these included programs working with the private sector, as well as programs to develop mobile phone-based technologies to empower mobile, vulnerable populations (refugees). Jarrett’s years of experience as a technical specialist and country director are invaluable as he supports the maturation of Issara’s Thailand country operations, and expansion of Issara’s work into new Southeast Asian countries.
