Passing of Mr. Hachmi Kennou

It is with deep sadness and regret that we have heard of the passing of a friend of GWOPA, former President of the Mediterranean Water Institute (IME), Mr. Hachmi KENNOU.

Mr. KENNOU was one of the most recognized experts in the field of water, both in his country of origin and in the international sphere. A graduate in hydraulic engineering from the National Polytechnic Institute of Toulouse, he began his professional career in 1970. Formerly CEO of the National Sanitation Office in Tunisia, he was appointed Governor of the World Water Council in 2003, thereby coordinating the Transcontinental Mediterranean Process of the World Water Forum.
