In September 2014, the Swedish King will hand over the Stockholm Water Prize to John Briscoe for his unparalleled contributions to global and local water management, inspired by an unwavering commitment to improving the lives of people on the ground.

For several reasons, I have the feeling that there are relatively few people who are working in the water space who do not know John. John has been making a considerable impact for quite some years in a number of countries around the world. Please do read his CV if you would like to know more.
