2014 Stockholm Water Prize Laureate: Professor John Briscoe

(Adapted from the official press release: www.siwi.org/prizes/stockholmwaterprize/laureates/2014-2/ )
[/i]
Professor John Briscoe has been named the 2014 Stockholm Water Prize Laureate for his unparalleled contributions to global and local water management, inspired by an unwavering commitment to improving the lives of people on the ground.

Professor Briscoe has become known for his passionate commitment to sustainable economic development, his disrespect for constructed boundaries between sectors and people, and for his insistence that the voice of people who are affected – from the poorest of farmers, to the private sector, to political leaders – be heard.

In his fusion of science, policy and practice, he has developed unrivalled insights into how water should be managed to improve the lives of people worldwide. This approach, which often blurs the boundaries of disciplines, has also included insights into sanitation, for example through the articles A role for water supply and sanitation in the child survival revolution ( apps.who.int/iris/handle/10665/51086 ) and (with Harvey Garn) Financing water supply and sanitation under Agenda 21 ( onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.14...5.tb00593.x/abstract ).

Originally from South Africa, John Briscoe's experience ranges from projects in Bangladesh and Mozambique to formulating the 2003 Water Strategy at the World Bank. He currently works as a professor at Harvard University in the United States.

H.M. King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden, Patron of the Stockholm Water Prize, will present the prize to Professor John Briscoe at a Royal Award Ceremony during 2014 World Water Week in Stockholm on September 4.

Dear Mughal,

I have contacted the communications director from the Stockholm International Water Institute, who very kindly provided Prof. John Briscoe's CV for us to post, where you will find a list of his publications from page 5 - page 13.

The source (book, journal, website) is listed for each publication, and for some even the web-link within the document can be clicked to access the publications.

Kind regards,

Roslyn
