Scientific Research Needs
Management Research Needs
- How many people in Georgia are working on water resources issues (government, university, some NGOs) and could potentially help with implementing parts of the (broadly envisioned) river basin management plans?
Ideas for Student Research Topics
- Equator Principles Financial Institutions - several major US banks have adopted environmental and fair labor standards for funding project over $10 million. Need research on details of these principles, list of Georgia banks using these principles, list of projects in Georgia financed under these principles, information about success of this initiative and how it could be expanded and/or improved.
