Kelly West joined UNEP in 2009 to oversee and further develop the portfolio of UNEP/GEF International Waters projects in Africa. This portfolio includes projects addressing transboundary water management of large marine ecosystems, river/lake basins and groundwater aquifers in Africa. Most projects contribute to the implementation of international, regional, sub-regional or basin policy documents and rely on the ecosystem approach and principles of IWRM. Previously Kelly worked for IUCN in Eastern Africa for seven years as the Water & Wetlands Coordinator and later the Regional Programme Coordinator where she developed skills in project design and management. She holds an MSc in Geosciences from the University of Arizona and a PhD in Earth & Space Sciences from the University of California - Los Angeles. Her interests include environmental flow assessments and management of lake (especially the African Great Lakes) and river systems.
