PAKISTAN - Perween Rahman on Mapping in Karachi - Feb 2013
Perween Rahman was with us in Bangkok in February 2013 for a big ACHR regional gathering - one of the rare meetings that busy and committed woman agreed to leave her work in Karachi to attend. During a special session on community surveys and mapping, Perween and her colleagues made a delightful and inspiring presentation about the maps they have been making and using for the last 32 years in Karachi and other parts of Pakistan. "We're all mappers," she told us, in that voice of hers, which went up and down the scale like a flute. "We love maps! We are all the Ninja Turtles of mapping! Maps are to our work what x-rays are to a doctor's: they tell us where the problem is and how to resolve it." Although we couldn't have known it at the time, this was Perween's last presentation to her friends and colleagues in Asia, her farewell message to us. This is the full transcription of Perween's presentation.
