APT Committee on Integrated Water Resources Co-chaired by George Smith and Ana Barros The IWR APT and BEED Water Resources standing committee will be merged as part of the CWCE reorganization as the Water Resource Committee within the Board on Global Strategies The APT is an example of a project that can be initiated by/within the WR Committee as activities require in-depth analysis and a deliverable to be provided. Specifically for the IWR APT, the major recent effort has been to initiate and execute a survey of customer needs for integrated water services. APT Committee on Solar Energy Forecasting In February 2013, John Schneider officially withdrew his participation in the AMS BEP. Streamlining the solar energy APT with the Renewable Energy Committee still allows this topic to be pursued in other ways Committee on Ecological Forecasting Co-chaired by Paul Sandifer and Juli Trtanj
