Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)

Our research is focused on developing the underlying analysis of evidence to influence policy and practice in the related fields of water sanitation and hygiene. We work with many development sector partners around the world including the World Bank and a number of non-governmental organisations. We organise the  biannual WEDC conference and our research has helped over a million people gain access to clean water.

We have wide-ranging experience and emphasise multi-disciplinary approaches. We study the functional, institutional, financial, environmental and equity aspects of sustainability, development and water management. The following links are to summaries for a number of projects we have undertaken in collaboration with a variety of organisations including the World Bank and United Nations.
