Bornean indigenous knowledge and tradition – a dance between tradition and intoxication.

The Global Alcohol Policy Conference rounds up today. It has been a brilliant conference, over coming difficuties related to the corona virus 10 to deliver an important and vaulable discussion regarding the state of alcohol policy and research in 2020. Much work still to be done. Looking forward to the next 12 months and the adventures to come in progressing my research and getting the indigenous knowledge of the Kadazandusun out into the world.. supporting change in reducing alcohol related harm… and seeing improvement in quality of life in the communities I work for!
