Developing Guyana – A round table discussion

EAME’s Managing Director, Steve Rowan, was recently invited, by the Guyana Hemp Association, to participate in a round table discussion concerning the emerging hemp industry in Guyana, it’s impact on youth employment, the Green agenda and Guyana’s long-term development in a changing global economic environment.

EAME is currently working with a local agricultural company, international hemp organisation and the Guyana Hemp Association to bring full scale hemp farming to Guyana, with a view to the country becoming a major manufacturer of hemp based industrial products.  Hemp can be 100% utilised to produce a vast range of industrial products used in automotive, construction, home-ware, textile, tech and pharmaceutical sectors.  Its growth and usage is a major contributor to sustainable development objectives.

EAME has been involved with various infrastructure developments in Guyana since 2016 after it was identified as an emerging market with whom EAME could develop long-standing relationships and alliances.

Steven Rowan (EAME MD) is the main speaker at the ‘Developing Guyana – A round table discussion’ to be held in London on 28/01/18.


EAME attends lunch with the Iraqi Ambassador

EAME recently attended a Strategy International lunch with the Iraqi Ambassador, Dr Salih Husain Ali Al-Tamimi, although, the Ambassador was unable to attend due to a last minute engagement, EAME found the event very useful and informative. EAME was able to provide insights to its current project work in Iraq as well as providing information on companies planning to expand into the Iraqi market.

EAME CIWEM Article Iraqi water security

David Wells, technical director at EAME, has recently published an article concerning Iraqi water security in the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM)’s monthly members magazine ‘Environment’. EAME has been working in Iraq since 2010 on various environmental and social projects and is well-versed with the country’s environmental and social conditions and problems and was, therefore, well placed to provide such an analysis.

David reported on the country’s continuing water crisis concerning both water security and quality. Detailing the issues affecting water and the consequences on society, David also suggested potential remedial actions, such as the need for greater cooperation between riparian states.

The article was well received and it is hoped that the article provides CIWEM’s members with the knowledge that Iraq is in dire need for affirmative action with climate change likely to have an significant effect on an already water-stressed environment.
