People working for a healthier environment
Currently designing projects for UNEP to reduce POPs and HHPs used in agriculture. Reducing the access and use of the most toxic pesticides will reduce environmental damage and negative public health impacts.
At UNEP, specifically GGKP, we are currently developing a project on agrochemicals. In addition, I have gathered relevant information while working on this project and doing research.
I obtained MSc in Environmental Science and Management from Haramaya University.
