After no less than seventeen years of service with CTA Mohun Narain, who in recent years has led CTA s Information Policies and Partnerships Department, is set to enjoy his retirement on his island home of Mauritius. Mohun, who studied agriculture and agricultural extension at Reading University in the UK, worked on his native island until 1981, when he was appointed to the ACP Secretariat in Brussels as agricultural expert. Four years later he was among the first technical staff members to be appointed to CTA in the Netherlands. Speaking to Spore, Mr Narain explained how new ICTs have led to a rethinking of the basic elements of agricultural extension since CTA was established, and how he had enjoyed working in these new areas. But it has been his work in the Pacific and in the Caribbean that has given him the most satisfaction, confirming our suspicions that he is an islander at heart. Mohun, whose quiet diplomacy and sharp mind will be missed at CTA, is looking forward to an active retirement and expects to maintain his involvement with agricultural development. We wish him and his family good health and every success!
