WASH Research (Type 1) Awards

On 22 March, 2019 - World Water Day - the WASH (Type 1) Research Awards were announced by the Australian Ambassador to Thailand, Mr Allan McKinnon.

‘The Water for Women Fund is a partnership that values collaboration… Our two meetings in Bangkok are an important step towards cementing that collaborative spirit. It is how we have to work if we want to make a difference to the 2.1 billion people who do not have safely managed drinking water services and the 4.5 billion people who lack safely managed hygiene services. Working smarter is also important and we need good evidence to do this. I am therefore very pleased to announce the WASH Research Awards Type 1 today.'

The Type 1 Research Awards will address key sector knowledge gaps and contribute to the Water for Women Fund end of program outcome of “strengthened use of new evidence, innovation and practice in sustainable gender and inclusive WASH by civil society organisations, national and international WASH sector actors.”

The four selected projects are listed below and more detail will be added soon.
