WRAP Board Member to Lead Water Practicum in Middle East

Longtime WRAP Board member Julie Weisman has been made an adjunct professor at the Francis King Carey School of Law at the University of Maryland. In this role, she will co-lead a grant-funded interdisciplinary practicum of students (law, MBA and public health) on a water related project in the Middle East. They will travel to a small town near Jericho which recently received, through a donor, solar panels to help pay the cost of deep drilling for water to irrigate crops in this arid region of the world. The students will work with the farmers and town leaders to help develop governance and business models so that the project can become scalable and sustainable.
