Javiera Calisto

Environmental attorney, campaigner and Director at Oceana Chile.

Javiera is an environmental attorney and campaigner.  She is currently Program Officer for the Marine Food Systems program at the Oak Foundation. In her role, she focuses on tackling the global imbalance of the world’s food supply chain by addressing the negative social and environmental impacts of distant water fishing fleets, while protecting the food security of small-scale fisheries, particularly in coastal nations in the southern hemisphere. In her previous role, Javiera was a Director at Oceana Chile, responsible for delivering legal campaign outcomes in the areas of marine pollution, marine protected areas and fisheries management. Jointly with her colleagues, she passed an ambitious single-use plastic law, ensured transparency and access to information in the salmon farming industry, and stopped the dumping of mining tailing into the ocean, among other victories. Javiera holds a master’s degree in Environmental Law at Melbourne University and graduated from the International Foundation for the Law of the Sea’s Summer Academy and the United Nations Regional Course on International Law.
