About

Objectives

ASME's Engineering for Global Development (EGD) programs and services will foster collaboration among the engineering and global development stakeholders to create avenues and opportunities for ASME members, volunteers, and engineers around the world to meet the challenges faced by billions in under-served communities. These challenges can include access to clean water, adequate sanitation, housing, reliable electricity, transportation, food production, education, health care, information and communications, among others.  ASME EGD will focus on content development, advocacy, education and technology development and transfer for social impact.  This is, however, a collaborative effort.  EGD looks to ensure that appropriate partners in the global development field are aware of and involved in our efforts.  The increasing membership of Engineering for Change (E4C) will complement EGD efforts in this growing space.
