Nima Bah BARRY, Economist

With an MA in Economics, I am an environmental expert with more than 15 years’ experience working at national and international levels. At the African Union, I supervised the activities of the Special Emergency Assistance Fund for Drought and Famine in Africa (SEAF). I was also responsible for evaluating the implementation of projects and reports back to the Policy Committee of the Fund. In addition, within the UNCCD, I followed the progress made in the implementation of the convention and also provided guidance to Parties in preparing reports on the implementation of the Convention. Within this context, as Programme Officer, I was responsible for the third national report for Africa. As a Guinean top government official within the ministry of Environment, this experience is coupled with the membership of the GEF Council for the 8 West Africa costal countries Constituency. Furthermore, I was the Director of the National Environment Fund and GEF focal Point for Guinea, responsible for environment projects implementation, results and impact as well as mainstreaming GEF objectives in national policy frameworks. As an experienced consultant, I worked on NAP alignment to the UNCCD 10 year’s strategy for Nigeria, Senegal and Sierra Leone.
