Pablo Orams

Senior Project Officer


Pablo is a dynamic, highly motivated water management specialist who has a desire to influence the development of sustainable communities.

He started as an Industrial Engineer (University of Lima, Peru), performing successfully in the Peruvian manufacturing sector, where he gained experience in systems and process analysis. Having observed first-hand the impacts that favouring rapid economic growth can have over social and environmental outcomes, he became committed to using his skills to support the global sustainability agenda.

This led him to follow studies in Environmental Management (Pontifical Catholic University, Peru), and then a move to Australia in 2011 to participate in the IWC’s Master of Integrated Water Management (University of Queensland), where he pursued a specialisation in urban water management. His master’s research explored the challenges and opportunities for the adoption of water sensitive approaches in urban development.

Pablo joined the IWC in 2013, and has been involved in the delivery of several successful training programs and capacity building projects for clients across the world (including Peru, Colombia, China, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia and the Philippines), as well as acting as a researcher for the CRC for Water Sensitive Cities (CRCWSC Project D4.1).

Pablo is now leading IWC’s custom training portfolio, and brings value as a versatile team member, collaborating on projects across the organisation.

He strives to nurture a healthy work-life balance and is an active musician and passionate surfer.
