Vale Mark Pascoe – a global water leader lost too soon

Water Policy Group mourns the passing of Mark Pascoe, Chief Executive Officer of the International WaterCentre and Governing Council Chair of the Asia Pacific Water Forum.

Water Policy Group member and fellow Australian Tony Slatyer, who had known Mark professionally for nearly 20 years, describes Mark as the epitome of effective leadership.

“Mark was a great role model in the global water family with his deep commitment to our cause, his determination to achieve the best possible outcomes from every project and every event and his generous spirit and friendliness to all of us.  Mark had earned respect and affection from the broad water policy and professional community, in Australia and all around the world, and his loss will be deeply felt by all of us who had the privilege of working with him,” Mr Slatyer said.

Water Policy Group extends our sympathy to Mark’s family and his colleagues at the International Water Centre and the Asia Pacific Water Forum in their difficult time.
