Vital Signs

Big Idea: 

Vital Signs (a program of Conservation International) gets government decision makers the ecological data they need to make good agriculture policy decisions. They collect and package the right data at the household, plot, and regional level to create a picture of the relationship among agriculture, nature, and human wellbeing. They also create relationships and processes to ensure that data informs decisions.

Alice joined Vital Signs in 2016 from the UNDP, where she led the Global Environment Finance Unit in Africa that raised $600M. She’s worked at Uganda’s Environment Management Authority, along with Sprint and Forest Trends. She has a Bachelors from Makerere University and a Masters in Agricultural and Applied Economics from the University of Wisconsin.
