Dr. Peter McNamee joins Hatfield
Feb 02, 2005
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Peter McNamee has recently joined Hatfield Consultants Ltd. as a full-time Senior Environmental Specialist.
Dr. Peter McNamee is a senior natural resources and environment specialist with more than 25 years of consulting experience in North America and Asia.
Dr. McNamee received his Ph.D from UBC in 1986 with a simulation modelling study of the ecological behavior of a number of North American forest defoliating pests and their impacts on forest resources and forest ecology. During his Ph.D studies, Dr. McNamee served as a freelance consultant to a number of natural resource and environmental agencies including the US Environmental Protection Agency, the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, and the US Fish and Wildlife Service. In 1978, he worked at the Institute of Environmental Studies at the University of Toronto as part of a research program on community and fisheries ecology of Canadian Shield lakes. Dr. McNamee worked in 1979 and 1980 with the U.S. Forest Service at the Pacific Northwest Forest and Range Experiment Station in Corvallis, Oregon as a Modelling Specialist for the Canada-US Spruce Budworms Research Project.
Dr. McNamee started his international work in 1989 with a project in Viet Nam for the Mekong River Commission. This marked the beginning of a period of consulting increasingly dominated by projects with international development agencies, focused mainly on Southeast Asia. He continued working domestically in the natural resource management sector until 1993, when he began working exclusively on international development projects, applying the same set of skills he had learned and used in North America. Dr. McNamee has worked internationally since 1989 in Southeast Asia, China, South Asia, and the Middle East. Dr. McNamee’s work is focused on strategic natural resource management issues and integrating environmental and natural resource conservation and management with socioeconomic development (particularly poverty in rural areas), as well as environmental assessments of major infrastructure development projects. His work is grounded in comprehensive analysis, use of data, information, modeling, and public consultation. His international clients have included the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank, the Canadian International Development Agency, the Mekong River Commission, a number of UN agencies, as well as the private sector.
As a Senior Environmental Specialist at Hatfield Consultants Ltd., Dr. McNamee will provide ongoing assistance in overall domestic and international project coordination; contribute technical inputs to domestic and international projects; and take a major role in identifying and marketing of opportunities in both domestically and internationally.
The management and staff of Hatfield welcome Peter to our growing team of environmental professionals.
