British Deputy High Commissioner to Kenya, Susie Kitchens, has paid a visit to the UN Environment World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) near Cambridge during a trip back to the UK.
Tweeting about her visit, Ms Kitchens said the UNEP duty station in Cambridge “is doing important work to prepare for the 2020 ‘Super Year’ for Biodiversity. International collaboration is vital; UK is at the forefront of sustainability and conservation policies.”
Working with scientists and policy makers across the glob, the UNEP seeks to place biodiversity at the heart of environment and development decision-making.
The 100-strong international team are recognised leaders in their field and have unrivalled understanding of the institutional landscape surrounding biodiversity policy and ecosystem management. Based in Cambridge, UK, UNEP-WCMC is a collaboration between UN Environment and the UK charity, WCMC.
