Summary

I hold Masters Degree from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies where I focused on natural resources management and policy, in particular, the role local communities play at the intersection between development and natural resources. I also hold Bachelor of Science in Aquatic Environmental Sciences at University of Dar-es-Salaam where I majored in freshwater and marine ecological ecosystems. I currently work for the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Tanzania Country Office where I coordinate the Regional Forest programme covering Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Madagascar and Mozambique. At WWF, I lead the country forest teams to design, implement and monitor large scale terrestrial programmes funded by private sector, bilateral and multilateral agencies. Prior to WWF, I worked for the Tanzania Natural Resource Forum (TNRF) as the Head of Programmes, designing and overseeing projects on climate change, forestry and land rights.
