Charlotte Hicks is a Senior Technical Officer with the United Nations Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC), working in the area of climate change and biodiversity. She works with countries and partners on activities that support decision-making on biodiversity and climate change policy and action, including Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD+) and ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA).
Within the UN-REDD Programme, Charlotte’s work is focused on social and environmental safeguards, REDD+ co-benefits and integrated land use planning, and she has provided support to a number of UN-REDD country partners, including Myanmar, Viet Nam, Mongolia and Nigeria. Recent work on EbA includes supporting a joint project of IIED, IUCN and UNEP-WCMC researching when and why EbA is effective– the conditions under which it works, and the benefits, costs and limitations of natural systems compared to other options – and promoting the better integration of EbA principles into policy and planning.
