Executive Director, Vital Signs at Conservation International
Kenya, originally from Uganda
Alice is the Executive Director of Vital Signs, an integrated monitoring system that generates data on agriculture, ecosystems and human wellbeing and transforms them into decision support tools for managers and planners to enable better decision-making in support of sustainable development. Before Vital Signs, Alice worked for the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) team leading the Environmental Finance Unit in Africa. Alice’s more recent work has focussed on systems thinking and identifying decisions points or processes across sectors where data can be influential in policy and planning. This is what attracted her to Vital Signs where she will continue to promote multi-scale and multi-sectoral use of Vital Signs’ data. Alice holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Sciences from Makerere University (Uganda), and a Master’s Degree in Agricultural and Applied Economics from the University of Wisconsin (USA).
