He coordinated the organization and mobilization of the LDC Watch civil society policy advocacy and campaigns in the 48 UN-defined least developed countries (LDCs) in Africa, Caribbean and the Asia-Pacific.

He played a noted role as a human rights defender at the national and international levels – especially at the United Nations (UN) and European Union (EU) – during the ‘direct royal regime’ in 2005 and subsequent second democracy movement or Jana Andolan II in April 2006.
