She was additionally in charge of interactions with all local project partners and public donors (mainly AFD, the EU and Expertise France). Throughout her six-year experience within the WWF international network, Alice developed a strong expertise in biodiversity and climate especially in WWF France’s fields of intervention (i.e. Central Africa, North Africa and Madagascar) and on the associated global challenges (i.e. post-2020 global biodiversity framework, resource mobilization, biodiversity and climate mainstreaming and alignment of investors and public donors’ portfolios with global frameworks on climate and biodiversity).
Alice also worked for the French Agency for Development in Gabon and Sao Tome Islands for two years as a Project Officer on subjects including protected area management and funding, the forestry and timber industry and agroecological value chains. She oversaw the implementation of projects financed through the France-Gabon Debt Conversion Agreement (debt for nature swap).
