Varsha Mehta

Hello members of RDA Asia! I have joined recently and was looking for information about the goings-on in this region and group. I suspect that there is a lull at the moment, maybe because of the painful pandemic years? It’ll be great if we can get started by introducing ourselves and sharing our interests.

I am Varsha and I work as a freelance consultant in the broad area of rural livelihoods and natural resource management. Based in India.
