What the fellow says:

"The UNESCO / Keizo Obuchi Research Fellowship encouragingly confirmed the value of the research I had proposed. It has enabled me to learn from overseas experts in this important field of environmental policies and will enable me to keep providing improved services for the people in my local community. It allowed me to do research that would otherwise not have been possible."
