I joined CABI in November 2016 as a Technical Assistant. Currently, my major responsibility is to take care of the social media of a project and provide weekly, monthly, and quarterly reports. I also provide technical assistance to the Project Manager in activities relating to supply chain management. This role has provided me an opportunity to utilise my skills and knowledge. Apart from performing assigned tasks, I also assist the Administration Manager.
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.
Tackling agricultural pests in Pakistan in a safe and sustainable way will save crop losses and benefit Pakistan’s exports. We are strengthening the capacity of Pakistan’s systems to implement biocontrol programmes for agricultural pests that cause huge problems. We will also lessen the impact of post-harvest pests and aflatoxins, and improve the capacity of plant health regulators to certify exports of agricultural commodities.
