Greetings from the new Programme Management Officer on the Biosafety Clearing-House
Dear BCH Users and Colleagues,
My name is Zakir Jafry, and I’m the new Biosafety Clearing-House Officer at the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity. I’m very humbled to be able to serve you all and the larger BCH community.
I’d like to take this opportunity to briefly introduce myself. Before taking this role, I spent the last twelve years working at the Commission for Environmental Cooperation as a Project Lead on Geospatial and Environmental Information projects between Canada, Mexico, and the United States. I managed international geospatial databases, and in addition, worked extensively on a database of pollutant releases and transfers from industrial facilities across North America.
I’m very excited about our upcoming migration to the new BCH platform in the coming months. I’m well-aware of the ongoing and extensive work that has been conducted by the members of this forum, and am very honored to continue working with you all on this important effort.
Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, comments, or concerns. I greatly look forward to our continued collaboration.
Biosafety Clearing-House Programme Management Officer
United Nations Environment Programme/Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity
