Caroline Kimani

Caroline is pursuing a M.Sc. Range Management through the lens of socio-ecological systems at the University of Nairobi, Kenya. She holds a B.Sc. Range Management from the same university and a postgraduate diploma in Climate Friendly Travel from Institute of Tourism Studies, Malta.

As a Range Socio-Ecologist, Caroline has contributed to projects in regenerative agriculture and dryland resilience design in Kakuma, Northern Kenya, with Danish Refugee Council; Impacts of the LAPSSET Infrastructure Projects on Livelihoods of Communities in Marsabit by Cordaid International; air pollution studies with GeoHealth Hub and One Health systematic policy review with Africa One Health University Network. She has also played the role of research student mentor with the Colorado State University for the East African International Research Experience for Students’ Program in Northern Tanzania.

Attempting to empower her community through environmental conservation, she co-founded My Earth Space Initiative in 2019, a youth-led organization whose vision espouses a society where individuals and institutions adopt behaviors that reflect commitment to a sustainable environment. As a result, early this year, she was selected as a 2021 Global Youth Climate Network Ambassador by the World Bank Group Young Professionals, where she is part of a taskforce developing a position paper on climate change. Caroline has an enduring passion for adding value to society by creating awareness of how the natural environment works to promote more efficient and sustainable environmental management and protection for posterity.
