What the fellow says:

"The fellowship in general built my capacity in bringing between science and practice. I learnt a significant rational approach - Understand (First) and Explore (Second) - so that my decisions will be more based on an objective scientific basis. I also learnt of three major approaches to be considered in my job: the integrated approach, precautionary (proactive rather than reactive) approach, and the ecosystem approach. I also learnt how to mainstream environmental, institutional and socio-economic considerations into management that seeks to achieve sustainable development."
