How do you protect the pulse of the planet?
The pulse of a planet will only beat when the storage tank of the planet is full and when the people around the region are food secure. Therefore, I protect the pulse of the planet through my focus on crop monitoring and food security assessment in the region.

The diversity we have in ICIMOD and the environment we share. I also enjoy working with the many different experts both within ICIMOD and among our partners.
