After 33 years of service, Mr Kazmi retired as Director (FI) from the Directorate of Extension, Department of Agriculture, Cooperation & Farmers Welfare, Government of India in 2013.
Mr Kazmi is not just a gem of a person, but a real-life champion of the cause of inclusive development.
Ali is a Senior Global Health and Development Specialist, with 12 years of experience in developing, leading and conducting research projects to support evidence-based international, national and local policies.
His specific interest in health stems from, and is intertwined with, his larger concern with issues of development. As such, he not only wishes to develop a human flourishing-oriented notion of inclusive development, but a Health as Flourishing Initiative (HFI) as a central component of IDF's activities going forward.
