“I consider myself very fortunate to have spent the last 6 years as the Chair of the Technical Committee. The Committee should be seen as the stable backbone of GWP,” says Dr. Mohamed Ait-Kadi in a farewell interview.
The GWP Technical Committee currently consists of 13 international experts who provide guidance and content to GWP’s technical publications.
Looking back at his time with GWP, Dr. Ait-Kadi says that the Technical Committee’s strength lies in its unique mix of disciplines, from different regions and organisations. He wanted to build a proactive Committee, he says, where it played an active part in shaping the thinking about transition to a water secure world. So where did they start, what were the challenges, and where are they heading now?
This is Dr. Mohamed Ait-Kadi’s story, in his own words.
