In memoriam: Mr Eberhard van der Laan
It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of Mr Eberhard van der Laan, Mayor of the city of Amsterdam, on the evening of 5 October 2017. Mr Van der Laan was actively involved in the organisation of the biennial Amsterdam International Water Week. Not only as hosting mayor, but also as ambassador of the Sarphati Sanitation Awards. We are highly appreciative for his dedication and commitment to the AIWW and his determination to improving sanitation for all. He will be dearly missed at this year’s edition of the Amsterdam International Water Week from 30 October to 3 November.
