CH2M Hill has joined the U.S. Water Partnership’s steering committee, which intends to respond to the water demand of the developing countries.
The USWP includes more than 61 members such as federal agencies, academic institutions, non-governmental organizations and water coalitions, CH2M Hill said Wednesday.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton launched the partnership in 2012 and partners have contributed more than $600 million to the USWP since, according to the company.
On March 21, the USWP will celebrate its first anniversary and welcome new members at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington.
Keynote speakers at the event will include:
- Bob Bailey, president of CH2M Hill’s global water business
- John Holdren, director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy
- Amb. Hattie Babbitt, chair of the USWP steering committee
- Lt. Gen. Jeffrey Talley, commander of the U.S. Army Reserves
“Sustainable management of water, energy and food resources is critical to the future of our global community, economy and environment,” Bailey said.
“We are proud to lend our knowledge, resources and skills as a member of the U.S. Water Partnership as we continue to tackle the pressing, intertwined challenges that face everyone who influences or is influenced by the water cycle,” he added.
