What others are saying

“It was a great pleasure to brainstorm ideas with Ambika, critically analyze recent developments and policies, screen case studies and document innovative experiences, and weigh pros and cons of proposals. I believe she will be able to make contributions of this nature in any context as she will immerse herself deeply in the local realities and use her experience from other contexts.”

Director of Climate Sense and Former UNDP- Vietnam Policy Advisor on Climate Change

“Ambika hit the ground running the moment she arrived and took to heart her mission of assembling a group of outside authors as geographically diverse as the issue of global climate change…Her passionate commitment that voices from the Global South be heard in this volume helped produce more-productive ideas for addressing climate change at every level.”

“Ambika fulfilled her role as consultant to research and write a report: “Whatever the weather” about journalism on climate change in developing countries. The report was launched at the climate change COP in Kenya and drew much attention from international delegates for its ground-breaking insights. Ambika’s approach was highly professional, friendly and efficient.”
