Will Schmitt — Open Innovation Advisor, USAID's Office of Science and Technology
Waste created by humans, animals and industry is one of the largest hidden challenges facing developing countries. The U.S. Agency for International Development is teaming up with the apparel company Nike to encourage, support and implement innovative and sustainable solutions that reduce and better handle trash and sewage. Nine organizations from around the world were selected to receive U.S. support and participate in a forum this week in California. LAUNCH connects innovators with leaders and provides resources and guidance to accelerate the implementation of the technologies, businesses, and programs that address this growing problem.
USAID open innovation advisor Will Schmitt helped judge the "Launch: Beyond Waste" contest. He says whether the waste comes from farms, people, or industries the problems hit the world's poorest the hardest.
