Smart Perspectives

A key aspect to making the resilient development a reality is by recognizing vulnerabilities within existing resources, and providing methods on how to build capacities to evolve with change.

I manage knowledge,  monitor progress, and make sure that industry, organizations, and policymakers have the right data to guide the strategies, projects, and policies based on resilience principles.
