Anjana Tiwari – I am an enthusiastic young architect from Nepal completing my masters program in urban environmental management from the School of Environment, Resources and Development at AIT. I aspire to contribute towards sustainable development through local level planning, green architecture and disaster-resilient infrastructure development. Hence, to expand my pragmatic approach and knowledge:
I joined RRCAP as a part-time intern for 3 months (May 2018- August 2018). I supported RRCAP in research and communications, particularly in analyzing approved funding proposals to the Green Climate Fund and distilling good practices in proposal writing and development. Apart from this, I got to research on programs and activities of south-south cooperation and triangular cooperation related to climate resilient development. From this internship, I learned about proposal writings, case studies analysis and time management.
I am Luong Thi Thuy, a Vietnamese student, currently pursuing my Master’s degree in Urban Environmental Management (UEM) at the Asian Institute of Technology.
