On September 20th, 2022, Mr. Jean-Pierre Marcelli, newly appointed AFD South-East Asia Regional Director, based in Bangkok, took the opportunity of his mission in Cambodia to pay a short visit at Institut Pasteur du Cambodge (IPC). Accompanied by Mrs. Sandrine Boucher, newly appointed AFD Cambodia Director, and Mr. Emmanuel Dollfus, AFD Cambodia Deputy Director, Mr. Marcelli was greeted by a small team of IPC scientists, all involved in the ECOMORE program, a project funded by the AFD since 2013.
The delegation was given a general presentation of the institute by Pr. Spiegel, Director of IPC, to let them grasp the scope of mission and activities of IPC. Later on, Ms. Emilie Carlot, regional coordinator of the ECOMORE 2 project, exposed the outline of the project, soon coming to an end, and introduced the main proposal ideas for a potential third phase.
During a brief round of discussion, Mr. Marcelli shared his pleasure getting acquainted to IPC and his desire to pursue collaborating with the institute, notably through climate and ASEAN network focused programs.
