What the fellow says:

"I was extremely honoured to receive the UNESCO / Keizo Obuchi fellowship. This award was very important to my ability to conduct independent reserach in a controversial field, which demonstrated to me UNESCO's global scope and openess to new challenges. Winning this award brought into me a new enthusiasm and energy for my work that allowed me to widen my view of the research possibilities in interdisciplinary studies, and most importantly, it has given me the time to think critically about the intersection of social science and environmental issues. Thanks to UNESCO's support I was able to learn from the experience of other countries facing similar issues while creating new networks with indigenous communities at home and abroad."
