I am a certified project development professional, certified from KESSA DIMITRA of Greece in 2005 and gained PRINCE2 Foundation accreditation in 2017. I have actively been engaged in project/programme development and have successfully designed projects and programmes in various sectors and secured funds from a number of donor agencies.
CABI’s centre in Pakistan coordinates our activities in Central and Western Asia. Small-scale farming here is widespread, employing a large percentage of the population in many areas. Agriculture contributes heavily towards the region’s economy and its development.
