Science-Practitioner Partnerships

Over the last decade, we have worked to reduce social inequalities through long-term and interdisciplinary research to address enduring challenges of river water security in urban Asia, climate resilience in Africa and results-based funding for safe drinking water in rural Africa and Asia.

We aim to make 10 million poor people in Africa and Asia water secure by 2024, and advance thinking on rural water finance to provide reliable water services for 100 million people by 2030.

HIGHLIGHT

Investing in professional maintenance for drinking water infrastructure in rural Kenya

Repairing rural water infrastructure quickly through professionalised maintenance can reduce costs and increase social and economic returns, with benefits for low income households and women.
