Meet the Team

Anna Chenery

Anna has worked as part of the BIP Secretariat for almost five years. Her current responsibilities include the coordination of the BIP’s global indicator development in support of the CBD and Multilateral Environmental Agreements. Anna has experience in both the communication and technical development of global biodiversity indicators. She has also supported the BIP’s work on capacity building by co-facilitating regional workshops and contributing to the delivery of materials, which will form part of the BIP’s new toolkit for national indicator development and use. When not at her desk you will find Anna running along a canal way training for her next marathon. 


Philip Bubb

Philip leads the  BIP Secretariat’s work on linking global and national biodiversity indicator work, especially capacity building materials and workshops for national indicator developers. He also works at UNEP-WCMC on capacity building in ecosystem assessments, including understanding ecosystem functioning, and the stakeholder engagement in the UK National Ecosystem Assessment. He has a degree in Ecology and MSc in Natural Resource Management, worked in Chiapas, Mexico for seven years, and is a keen birder.

Sarah Brooks

Sarah received an MSc in Biodiversity, Conservation and Management, having previously completed a BA in modern languages, and has work experience ranging from meerkat fieldwork in the Kalahari to project management in Egypt. In her spare time, she enjoys travelling, attempting to get to grips with photography and occasional (fair-weather) rowing.

Cristina Secades

She is the Communications Manager of the BIP, acting as focal point between the BIP Secretariat, Partners, end users, the CBD Secretariat and other relevant stakeholders. She also works at UNEP-WCMC on a range of projects related to ecosystem assessment and support to various Conventions and MEAs.
