What does a typical day for you look like?
A typical day for me starts arriving at office around 8:30 am to check and respond to my emails before I leave for the field to oversee activities. My major concern is with visiting the construction sites in order to make sure that all compliance standards are met. I meet with local elders of the community to ensure that they are aware and involved in the local decision making. While returning from field sites, I often visit local line departments for bilateral meetings, and keep myself up to date with the concerns.
