Technical Coordinator at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Previously a Programme Officer in the Energy, Environment and Climate Change Unit at the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Kenya Country Office. Also worked at the UNDP Regional Service Centre for Africa-Global Environment Finance Unit (Africa region) within the Bureau for Policy and Programme Support (BPPS).

As a Technical Coordinator,  my work involves programme/project management and coordination, resource mobilization, knowledge management, policy advice, research & evaluations and building strategic partnerships with donors and other development partners. At UNDP, I oversaw the successful design, development and implementation of several projects within the Climate Change, Biodiversity, Land Degradation and chemicals management focal areas under GEF, USAID, DFID, EU and JICA funding modalities.

I am a trained Core Modeller for the government of Kenya on application of the Threshold 21(T21) Model -a highly dynamic and quantitative Simulation Tool which can be used to generate scenarios to examine and compare effects of different green economy and related policies, different Climate Change Adaptation options under uncertainty and how long term benefits can be managed and negative feedbacks mitigated.

I am highly results-oriented and passionate about natural resource management. In 2014, I was awarded the UNDP  Kenya Country Office Outstanding Achievement Award and the UNDP Kenya Country Office Champion Award for all round outstanding achievement in advancing the mission, goals and objectives of UNDP within the Environment Programme.
