Clean Water Program Manager

Carrie Sanneman is Willamette Partnership’s Clean Water Program Manager. She leads on green infrastructure for water and is an expert in market- and incentive-based approaches to conservation. Sanneman’s career has revolved around conservation and restoration: the laws and policies that drive resource management; the tools to evaluate and communicate the benefits nature provides; the options for funding and financing that work; and, the realities of moving dirt and planting plants.

Sanneman manages the Ecosystem Credit Accounting System, which can be used to generate compliance-grade credits from high-quality restoration projects. She is also a lead and co-facilitator for local, regional, and national processes to engage stakeholders around building cost-effective, multi-benefit, nature-based solutions to cleaner water.

Sanneman holds an interdisciplinary Master of Environmental Science and Management from the University of California Santa Barbara’s Bren School and a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Environmental Studies from Iowa State University.
