    Loïc Fauchon, World Water Council Honorary President and long-term member of the World Water Council was awarded the Water Prize by HRH Prince Albert II of Monaco at the 8th award ceremony of the Prince’s Foundation for his actions on promoting the cause of water. “It’s water that is being honored here today. Its challenges are immense for humanity faced with demographic pressure and rising living standards," said Mr. Fauchon during the award ceremony which was held last Friday at the Grimaldi Forum of Monaco. 
     
    “Loic Fauchon has given political density to the works of the World Water Council. This is a most deserved award,” said World Water Council President Benedito Braga who celebrated the event.
     
    Mr. Fauchon was awarded in recognition of a career dedicated to the cause of water in the world whether through his actions in the field of the associative humanitarian sector with NGO TransSahara, as Director and then CEO of the Société des Eaux de Marseille, or as President of the World Water Council (2006-2012). His missions enabled him to carry his message to the international community, to make his voice heard up to the United Nations and to give an unprecedented impetus to the cause of water for all.
