Meeting connects Maryland water quality experts and Asian partners to minimize water quality problems in Asia

A scientist from the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science was an invited guest at the October 23 meeting of the Maryland–Asia Environmental Partnership meeting (http://www.mdaep.com) “A Public-Private dialogue: Galvanizing Maryland Resources to meet water management and technology needs in Asia.” The conference focused on connecting expertise from Maryland-based university research labs, state, national, and multilateral government agencies, and the business supply chain, to build partnerships to do business in Asia.

The intent of these connections is to try to reverse or lessen the dire predictions by United Nations experts that Asian developing countries will soon face a water quality management crisis unprecedented in human history. The meeting provided unique Maryland perspectives on applicable lessons-learned in water management, new technologies and financial resources, and sustainability efforts which could be mobilized to help address Asia’s water management and technology needs.
