Sara Elfstrand is a Programme Coordinator at SwedBio.

Her main area of work at SwedBio is coordinating the Collaborative Programme and overall programme planning and reporting. In recent years she has also worked on resilience assessments, for example, through multi-actor dialogues to promote knowledge exchange related to resilience assessments and integration of social-ecological resilience principles and resilience thinking into development and biodiversity planning frameworks. Another approach has been the development of an e-learning course on resilience assessments for development practitioners, developed by SwedBio together with SwedBio partners and SRC education and research.

She represents SwedBio in the steering committee of the Agroforestry Network, a Sweden-based platform for international agroforestry practice.
Sara is an agronomist with a research background in soil biology and agroecology. Before joining SwedBio in 2008 she worked in an interdisciplinary research programme on agroecology, focusing on the impact of the use of green manure on soil fertility in organic vegetable production.
