USAIDIS/WB 1818 Society Water Group Joint Guest Speaker Luncheon Meeting, April 9th

Members and Friends of USAIDIS,

The US Inter-American Association of Sanitary and Environmental Engineering (USAIDIS), jointly with the World Bank 1818 Society Urban & Water Sector Group is pleased to invite you to our next guest speaker meeting on January 7th to hear a presentation by Dr Vijay Jagannathan, Senior Fellow at the Water Resources Institute (WRI) .  The title of his presentation is "An Innovative Waste to Energy Pilot Using Sludge and Kitchen Wastes in Xiangyang City, Hubei Province, China.” This was a project carried out by a WRI team in which Dr Jagannathan was a lead advisor.  The lessons learned in the design and implementation of this project are expected to have application in developing as well as developed countries and in particular countries in Latin America.

Dr Jagannathan is an economist with a specialty in Water Resources.  He joined WRI in 2012 after retiring from the World Back where his last position was Sector Manager for Infrastructure for the East Asia Pacific region covering the water, energy, transport and urban sectors. Before that he was Sector Manager for the first integrated water unit in the Middle East North Africa region.

The meeting will be followed by a light buffet lunch.
