Questions Harry is exploring in their work right now:

  • Can fair prices and better market access increase smallholder farmers’ motivation to implement best environmental and social practices in the cocoa supply chain in Colombia?
  • Can the combination of satellite data and ground data provide insights that satisfy due diligence requirements for sustainable cocoa production in Colombia?
  • How can we accelerate global access to medical oxygen in low-resource-settings through working on market readiness and technology issues concurrently?
