Reflections of an African Woman Environmentalist


I am a Zambian-born environmentalist, living in Nairobi, Kenya.  I have worked within the conservation and environmental fields having started my career in Zambia working at the Environmental Council of Zambia.  My environmental career – spanning over 20 years – has taken me to some of the most amazing places around the world.  I worked in Switzerland for the Convention on Wetlands (Ramsar) eventually joining The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) at its International headquarters in the same country.  I was the first Ted Hollis Scholar at University College London (UCL) where I undertook my PhD in Wetland Ecology and then moving back to WWF in the UK and eventually in Kenya.  I have been at UN Environment for 10 years now and currently the head of the agency’s Terrestrial Ecosystems Team. I enjoy what I do, the insight  and lessons from my experiences have provided for my everyday living. And as I blog I may share some random thoughts and rantings.


After all we have but ONE PLANET.
