How do you protect the pulse of the planet?
I protect the pulse of the planet through my role in support of navigating change towards impact for which proper planning, evidence-based feedback and reflexive practice are crucial. Personally, I also follow environment-friendly practices and urge others in my circles to do the same.
What is your favorite part of the work you do at ICIMOD?
What I enjoy most is the regional aspect of ICIMOD’s work and the fact that it is based on cutting age science.
What are you passionate about?
I’m passionate about traveling and exploring new areas. I love reading newspapers and books in my leisure time.
I hold an MSc in statistics, an MA in sociology, a BSc in forestry and a BSc in physical science. I’ve worked with bilateral and multilateral agencies and have extensive experience across all of the major domains of results-based management, monitoring and evaluation. I have a proven track record of playing an instrumental role in bringing a gender and equity focus to several organisations for the effective management of gendered outcomes.
