Deeply shocked we took note of the death of Eberhard van der Laan, our Mayor and Chairman of the Advisory Board of World Waternet.

From the  beginning of its term as Chairman of Advisory Board of World Waternet, he fulfilled his role with verve. Sharing our knowledge with water authorities with partner cities of Amsterdam was of great importance to him. This way, we contributed to making Amsterdam a world water expert city. He always kept a tight rein on the meetings and always aimed for maximum results. Whenever he opened doors for us, he fairly expected that we followed up.

We will always remember him as our Mayor and Chairman of our Advisory Board, and we will miss him.

We offer our sincere condolences to his family and friends.
