On behalf of the Global Harvest Initiative staff and board of directors, we convey our very best wishes to you and congratulations on all the accomplishments you and your team have achieved in the past several years.
As the founding executive director, your leadership at the Water for Food Global Institute has brought transformative change and impetus to one of the most critical issues we face today—how to ensure the availability of water for agriculture and for human life on the planet, especially in the face of climate change and shifting weather patterns.
Ann Steensland and I have enjoyed working with you and appreciate very much the contributions you have made to the work of the Global Harvest Initiative and for your strategic vision and partnership with us in our mutual efforts.
We wish you all the best as you continue to dedicate your efforts in the years ahead to making the world a better place. It has been a delight to know you and to partner with the Water for Food Institute and we look forward to continuing collaboration with the Institute in the years to come.
