- MEET THE TEAM TUESDAY “I am inspired by the work done by communities” AHMED HAMDHAN Project Coordinator, Rule of Law and Access to Justice - Integrated Governance Programme I have always been passionate about development work, despite my skepticism for certain approaches by international organizations in developing countries. It was only natural therefore that when I joined UNDP nine months ago, I did so being cynical of the role of UNDP and the impact of its programmes in the Maldives. However, as I leave UNDP at the end of this month, I am more than ever convinced of the crucial role that UNDP plays in making a difference in people’s lives. I am especially encouraged by the work the agency does in seeking localized solutions to development issues through new and innovative approaches. Governance is and have always been my passion, and my main area of work. Since joining UNDP, I have also developed a new found interest in the environment. I was inspired by the work done by the local community of Noonu Kudafari, especially their work on waste management. I am from the island of Kendhoo in Baa Atoll, and as in other islands of the Maldives, waste management has always been a major issue in my local community. Kendhoo already had a composting facility which remained unused, and the Council was very positive about starting composting waste on the island. I came to know that they just needed the technical know-how and the motivation to initiate this work. So myself and my colleague Adam Abdulla who works in UNDP’s Environment Unit, travelled to Kendhoo one weekend, and were able to help the Council start composting work. Since then, we have traveled several times to monitor the progress of the composting facility on my island. There’s still more work to be done, and I look forward to continuing the work we have started in this area. We did this not as part of our official duties, but because we found a shared passion in helping to bring about positive changes within our communities, and I can honestly say that this is true for all the staff working at UNDP Maldives. My regular job is as a Project Coordinator for the Integrated Governance Programme of UNDP Maldives, and I am responsible for the design and implementation of activities related to enhancing access to justice and protection of human rights in the Maldives. Before joining UNDP, I worked at the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES), focused on electoral reforms in the Maldives. 23 August AT 07:11 AM
