UNDP’s Nature for Development Programme aims to identify and accelerate nature-based solutions to achieve the social and economic dimensions of the SDGs, at both local and national scales. Jamison’s current portfolio includes three areas: The Equator Prize; support to national biodiversity planning and reports; and the New York Declaration on Forests.

For nearly 30 years, Jamison’s career has focused on the intersection of nature and development. She has worked with UNDP since before 2009. Before that, she worked for the World Wide Fund for Nature, The Nature Conservancy and the Forest Stewardship Council, focusing on how to protect restore and sustainably manage nature to achieve multiple development dividends.
