I am to conduct an assessment of conditions in tented camps and to coordinate on a waste strategy for the whole island with the French Red Cross, UNICEF, and local government. It is refreshing to see all these organizations working together, and I am reminded of similar success stories on islands such as Orkney and Shetland, where the added degree of remoteness is actually a stimulant to innovative waste management.
I have had a wonderful experience over the past six months and have learned so much from local and international colleagues alike. I am especially sad to say goodbye to my counterpart Agus Mahdi (pictured with me below), who has supported me, but I am confident that the waste projects we have developed together are in the best possible hands.
