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.
