Brenda Koekkoek

Programme Management Officer at UNEP

Since 2012, I have worked in a leading role with the secretariat of SAICM, including managing the secretariat efforts to design and now execute this multi-stakeholder SAICM GEF project.

Upon joining UNEP in 2006, I worked to establish and manage the Global Mercury Partnership and in providing policy support to the negotiation process for the development of the Minamata Convention on mercury. Prior to UNEP, I worked at Environment and Climate Change Canada on air quality and chemical related issues.

Much of my career has allowed me to work in a multi-stakeholder function on pollution and sustainability related issues, focusing on building strategic partnerships, overseeing consultation processes and project management.

My educational background is in Environmental Engineering (B.Sc.Eng, 1997) and Environmental Management (M.A, 2013).
