Carmona Rodrigues appointed president of Águas de Portugal


Carmona Rodrigues, professor and researcher at NOVA FCT's Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering, is the next president of Águas de Portugal.

According to a statement issued by the Ministry of the Environment, the professor's choice to lead the integrated management company for Portugal's urban water cycle reflects his ‘vast CV in the areas of water resources, hydraulics and the environment.’

Over the course of more than 40 years, the professor has been involved in a number of important projects in Portugal and abroad, particularly in the areas of water resources, hydraulics and the environment. He is currently a member of the Order of Engineers and the National Water Council. In 2023 he was appointed Chairman of ERSAR's Advisory Board and in 2022 he was appointed a member of the Compliance Committee under the Protocol on Water and Health to the 1992 Convention.

He is a former Minister of Public Works, Transport and Housing, former Mayor of Lisbon, former President of the Portuguese Water Resources Association and former national rugby champion.
