Results/Knowledge Specialist for Ecosystems and Biodiversity, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)

Jessie Mee works in Pretoria, South Africa as a results and knowledge specialist in the ecosystems and biodiversity group at UNDP.

"Bard CEP gave me the knowledge and opportunities to build a career in the field of international development. In fact, my internship led directly to my current position with UNDP as a technical adviser in its global Ecosystems and Biodiversity team. Every day in my work I apply the skills that I gained from CEP. Reflecting back on my unique multidisciplinary education at Bard, I realize that I am truly indebted to the passionate and dedicated CEP team."
