We are always delighted to hear from Alumni of ESCP and to catch up on their endeavours post-graduation. As such, we would like to share the latest news from a MSc in Energy Management alumna, Béah El Chemor.
Béah (MEM Class of 2015), is a member of a newly-established NGO, the Lebanese Oil and Gas Initiative (LOGI). An independent non-governmental organisation based in Beirut, LOGI promotes the transparent and sound management of Lebanon's oil and gas resources.
The long-term objective of this organisation is to develop a network of Lebanese experts in the global energy industry and provide them with a platform through which to educate Lebanese policy makers and citizens on the key decisions facing the oil and gas industry. It will focus on public awareness, policy development and advocacy, capacity building and technical assistance to help Lebanon maximise the economic and social benefits of its oil and gas wealth - and avoid the resource curse.
Dr. Kostas Andriosopoulos, Associate Professor of Finance, Academic Director of the MSc in Energy Management and Executive Master in Energy Management, and Executive Director of the Energy Management Centre (EMC) at ESCP Business School, sits on LOGI's Board of Advisors.
LOGI is currently running a crowdfunding campaign to allow research on several topics related to: governance, infrastructure, job creation, environmental protection, revenue management, and fiscal policy. It will develop different products, including draft laws to present to parliament, policy memos and briefs to educate policymakers, training and workshops, infographics and videos, as well as traditional media and social media campaigns to mobilise and raise awareness of Lebanese citizens. The campaign, which aims to raise £10,000, will fund the development of LOGI's website.
The campaign ends on 9th May. Click here to make a contribution.
