As a winner of the blogging contest “Engage: The Water-Energy Nexus” held by UAE’s Masdar organization, Political Science professor Blaney was invited to participate in the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week in January 2013. Selection committee noted that prof. Blaney’s “post demonstrated a thoughtful, well-researched response to the prompt, and stood out among the more than 70 submissions we received.” As a part of the recongnition, the organizers took care of all travel and accommodations expenses. Congratulations from all of us!

Professor Blaney will be giving a luncheon speech soon. Please be on a look-out for the email invitation to that event.
