The contents are my personal views on various topics I have encountered as a development consultant. Working with several development agencies in different capacities in Southeast Asia enabled me to have an understanding of issues and events as it happen. My participation in designing and implementing development interventions in many areas provided me with insights on how to best use the tools and methodologies to help improve conditions of communities I am serving.
But there remains challenges that have to find appropriate responses. As I reflect on these challenges, I also seek answers from the experiences of others and hope that in the future, through collective efforts, new approaches will be developed.
