Nadine provides leadership and technical oversight to projects with a focus on increasing the understanding of decision-makers regarding biodiversity and its many values, together with the linkages between biodiversity, ecosystem services, sustainable land management and human well-being/livelihoods, in order to mainstream biodiversity into policy in developing countries.
As a long-standing member of the EAPS programme, Nadine brings a wide range of experience in project and people management. Her areas of expertise include: mainstreaming biodiversity information into national decision and policy making processes; national ecosystem assessments; convening and supporting partnerships and networks; and promoting capacity development in developing countries.
Nadine holds an MSc (with distinction) in Green Economy from the University of Bournemouth, and a BSc (with first class honours) in Environmental Management from the University of Hertfordshire. Previous to joining UNEP-WCMC, Nadine held a management position in the retail sector, before re-training and undertaking a career change into the conservation sector.
