As Head of the KBA Secretariat I help the KBA Committee implement the KBA Programme. The KBA Programme is undertaking to identify, map, delineate and secure sites that are globally important for the persistence of biodiversity around the World. Key actions include supporting the development of the World Database of KBAs, developing training and communications materials, engaging governments, donors and the business community to make them aware of and encouraging them to conserve KBAs, supporting KBA National Coordination Groups to identify and delineate KBAs, and promoting the monitoring and conservation of KBAs.
