Caroline joined the EI team after seven years working with the World Wildlife Fund on their Coastal East Africa Program. While at WWF, Caroline led the US-funded marine and terrestrial portfolio in Mozambique and Tanzania, including program design and management, fundraising, and communications ($4 million annual budget; 20 staff). In this position, Caroline created a strategic plan for the Coastal East Africa (CEA) cross-functional team, monitored progress, and presented results and achievements to the senior leadership team on a regular basis. Caroline improved on the model of past programs by consolidating individual projects into a cohesive portfolio, focusing on natural resource management, fisheries, policy, and governance, in coordination with the WWF network’s Coastal East Africa Global Initiative. Additionally, Caroline contributed to key achievements in CEA, benefiting people and the environment in Mozambique, such as the declaration of the Primeiras and Segundas Environmental Protected Area, the establishment of the Lake Niassa Aquatic Reserve, and the formation of the BioFund, the first-ever trust fund for conservation areas in Mozambique.
