Jessica Donovan-Allen

Senior Director, Conservation International-Liberia

Jessica Donovan-Allen leads Conservation International’s work in Liberia, home to some of West Africa’s last intact forests. Jessica manages private sector engagement, conservation incentives for local communities, protected area and community forest planning and management, and capacity development, among other responsibilities.
Jessica's career at Conservation International began with an internship nearly 20 years ago, and has since taken her to the Ivory Coast, Ghana, Sierra Leone and Guinea, as well as Liberia. Today, Jessica oversees Conservation International’s work on sustainable landscapes, linking the conservation of essential natural capital to Liberia’s economic development needs both in terrestrial forest and agricultural areas, as well as along Liberia’s extensive coastline. 
 
An American by birth who was raised in Massachusetts, Jessica has been a resident of Liberia for nearly 15 years. She lives in Monrovia with her two daughters.
