Anteneh Belayneh

PhD Candidate: water resource allocation and management

Anteneh is a PhD candidate at the School of Public Policy and Administration (SPPA), starting in September 2014. His research interests relate to water resource allocation and management. His areas of expertise are Bioresource management and hydrology. His recent work involves studying the economic impact of mining on indigenous communities in the Canadian subarctic and drought forecasting in sub-Saharan Africa.

Anteneh holds a Master’s degree in Bioresource Engineering and a B.Sc (Honours) in Hydrology from Montreal’s McGill University. He has presented his work at conferences of the Canadian Society of Civil Engineers, the North American Society of Bioresource Engineering, and Resources and Sustainable Development in the Arctic. In 2012, Anteneh interned with the United Nations Convention on Biodiversity, working on economic planning in developing countries.
