NRI prof reports to international diplomatic forum on water and energy
The Canadian Consulate in New York, USA and American Jewish Committee (AJC) headquarter in New York organized an international conference focusing on natural resource diplomacy, entitled “Scarcity and Security” on March 23, 2016, in which U of M professor C. Emdad Haque was a key panel speaker.
The water panel consisted of Haque, Seth Seigel–an American entrepreneur, author and activist–and Amir Sagie, Deputy Consul General of Israel in New York.
Haque, a professor in the Natural Resources Institute, presented his thoughts and research findings on “water resources, risk and (in)security: Canadian perspectives” to the forum that was attended by more than 50 diplomats, senior government policy makers, philanthropists, writers, non-governmental organization representatives, activists, and investors. The forum concluded with identifying diplomatic instruments and policy action items for furthering international collaboration and cooperation on sustainable water and energy resources.
