Dr. Patrick Moriarty is IRC's Chief Executive Officer. He is a civil engineer by first degree and water resource management expert by main experience, with an emphasis on interdisciplinary work on water service delivery and local water governance. Patrick has over 20 years experience in a broad range of issues around water, its management and its use in improving human well-being, predominantly in Africa and South Asia.
Patrick has been with IRC since 2000, and has held several leadership positions: head of knowledge development, IRC's country director in Ghana, and director of one of the IRC's major projects, Triple-S.
Patrick's main area of interest is in how IRC can ignite and support sector-wide change that brings improved services (and more sustainable water resource use) to all. He finds the most professional satisfaction working in the messy interface between policy, applied research and practice.
