Read about some of the whole-of-water cycle, trans-disciplinary and collaborative applied research activities we have led across the world.
This International WaterCentre led research project is exploring how CSOs and governments can better enable rural community water management in the Pacific to improve SDG6 outcomes, using community water management plus practices.
This project integrated climate change impacts and current practices to develop a framework to enable communities and water managers to navigate from understanding impacts to evaluating adaptation options for water supply and sanitation.
This project was a multidisciplinary and participatory action research to examine the possibility of WASH marketing systems as an approach to achieve WASH outcomes for Melanesian communities of the Pacific, in particular informal urban or peri-urban communities. We developed a WASH Marketing Exchange systems Framework, which describes the nature of WASH exchanges that should be leveraged in informal settlements, and the requirements of the enabling environment to foster and support these WASH exchanges.
This one-year project, led by the IWC, in partnership with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and in collaboration with UNICEF Philippines and the WinS Technical Working Group, was created to address gaps in understanding barriers to hygiene and sanitation practices in schools.
