Short CV of Vladimiro Pelliciardi, born in Italy, 1953.I’m a Ph.D. (2012, three years academic course) in “Sustainable development and International Cooperation” at CIRPS, Interuniversity Research Centre on Sustainable Development, La Sapienza University, Rome, Italy; doctoral dissertation: Sustainability Perspectives of Development in Leh District (Ladakh, Indian Trans-Himalaya): an Assessment. http://hdl.handle.net/10805/1738.

My research interests include topics of human-environment interaction and sustainable development studies in Asia with a regional focus on the Indian and Nepalese Himalaya. In 1993, I was in Cambodia as UNV Engineer and Camps manager in the United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia (UNTAC), a UN peacekeeping mission, in supporting activities of installation and maintenance of prefabs camps and technical systems.

From 2005 to 2008, I was Consultant for Renewable Energy and Sustainable Technologies applications in the international cooperation project “Promotion of olive production and consumption in Nepal“. It was funded by the Italian MAE (Ministry of Foreign Affairs)–DGCS (Direzione Generale Cooperazione Sviluppo), under the scientific supervision of the Agrarian Faculty of Tuscia University, Viterbo, Italy, and implemented by FAO Agency in Kathmandu.

I hold (1978) a degree in Engineering (five years academic course), University of Bologna’s; thesis: Investigation on the pollution of Savena river (self-depuration-process in current waters). In 1993/04, I attended a post degree course (one-year academic course) in “International Cooperation and Intervention Politics in Developing Countries” from the Political Sciences Faculty, University of Bologna, Italy. Thesis: The Mekong watershed: a New Indo-Chine.
