Phone: +46 8 121 360 85
Mr. Andreas Lindström is a Programme Manager at the Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI). He is responsible for SIWI’s water-energy-food nexus core thematic area. Mr Lindström holds several wide-ranging responsibilities in SIWI Knowledge Services’ applied research and advisory services. Examples include exploring water, energy and security linkages (in collaboration with CSIR and IAGS), co-developing the Kaliningrad water resource management project and being a central team member in SIWI’s Regional Water Intelligence Reports (RWIR). RWIR provides strategic information on aspects of political economy of transboundary water resources issues, management and development in various regions such as East Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia. Beyond SIWI Knowledge Services, Mr. Lindström also leads the Swedish Water House cluster group on water and energy since 2011.
Mr Lindström has been central in developing SIWI’s core theme on water, energy and food linkages. In the field of water and energy, he has co-authored and provided research to a number of reports and projects aimed at assessing the potential of different regions to co-operate on and develop hydropower assets and water storage to sustain shared benefits. This has also entailed developing research on water related implications of various kinds of energy generation as well as providing recommendations on best practice enabling green growth. Furthermore, Mr Lindström has contributed to developing a methodology that assesses environmental statuses of transboundary water systems for the Transboundary Waters Assessment Programme (TWAP) supported by the Global Environment Facility (GEF). Mr. Lindström’s experience of water management issues has also led him to work with water strategy development for private sector actors through evaluative and strategic advisory services.
Mr. Lindström is M.Sc in Engineering from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm with a background in civil and environmental engineering and a focus on land and water management and sustainable infrastructure.
