Daniel Mora-Brito

Venezuela/ Switzerland, International Development Practitioner

Daniel Mora-Brito, a native from Venezuela based in Geneva, Switzerland, is an international development practitioner with more than 15 years of experience in strategy, strategic planning, external affairs, multi-stakeholder coordination, and communications in multilateral bodies such as the Organization of American States, the United Nations, and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. As a consultant and institutional reform specialist, Daniel has also served various portfolios focused on civil society strengthening, parliamentary affairs, and public-private partnerships across different nonprofit organizations, including the Pan American Development Foundation and the Global Business Coalition for Health. Daniel has written extensively about the proven potential and positive impact of the collective practice of music as a vehicle for sustainable human development, conducting relevant policy research on the Venezuelan System of Orchestras—commonly known as El Sistema—at the Institute of Latin American Studies of the University of Texas at Austin. A close collaborator of the movement’s international expansion, Daniel supported the creation of the first El Sistema-inspired school in Austin, Texas, under the auspices of the Hispanic Alliance for the Performing Arts. In addition to his training in political science, international relations, social policy and public management, Daniel pursued music studies in two national conservatories in his home country.
