Ted's proposal for an agricultural adaptation project in the Pamir Mountains won a competition at MIT's Climate CoLab! "The good balance between research and indigenous participation make this a strong proposal," one judge commented. "The team has included social science in the development... and with those elements, has a chance of success with the integration of the communities."

Ted and friend of Bellwether Cynthia Caron will be presenting at MIT's Crowds and Climate conference on October 6 in Cambridge, where he'll also be meeting with partners from Cornell, Clark, Florida State, and UMass Lowell to discuss fundraising and implementation details.
