Leading the UN Environment’s Share the Road Programme – which works with countries around the world to prioritise the mobility needs of the majority - pedestrians and cyclists. As well as advising on electric mobility transitions in selected countries. Founder of the Africa network for walking and cycling.
I have been working in the field of programme management for twenty years and sustainable transport for over ten years in the area of non-motorized transport, road safety, bus rapid transit, congestion charging, electric mobility, low emission zones and bike share systems.
Prior to my time with UN Environment Carly I was a Programme Manager for the UN-Habitat Sustainable Transport for East African Cities Programme supported by the Global Environment Fund. Working with city leaders in Nairobi, Addis Ababa and Kampala to plan for implementation of bus rapid transit systems.
Before moving to Kenya, I worked for Transport for London supporting design, implementation and launch of the London Cycle Hire Scheme and the London Low Emission Zone.
I hold a Masters in Business Administration with an elective in project management. I also hold the UK Association of Project Management Professional Qualification (APMPQ).
I have a particular interest in child health and mobility and the equity issues and solutions surrounding transport and making sure the needs of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged are heard.
