About / Bio
Mr. Kibiwot is a geologist working for National Oil Corporation of Kenya. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology from the University of Nairobi in 2000. In 2005, Mr. Kibiwot was seconded to the Task Force on delineation of Kenya’s outer limits of the continental shelf where he was subsequently nominated as one of the joint
secretaries. The Task Force, among other terms of reference, is mandated to establish the country’s outer limits of the continental shelf and thereafter make a submission to the Commission on Limits of the Continental Shelf (CLCS) for consideration; and to formulate the country’s integrated ocean management policy including institutional
framework. Besides coordinating the administrative issues of the Task Force on a day to day basis, Mr. Kibiwot is actively involved on the two issues because of their crosscutting nature.
