WASH (Type 2)

Research Awards

Following assessment of several Type 2 WASH Research Award applications in May 2018, the initial four successful Research Organisations will mobilise with their CSO partners to deliver six research projects over the first 2-3 years of Water for Women

Water for Women is the largest single investment in the development sector by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), investing AUD110.6 million over five years. AUD10.6 million of this investment is committed to research. Water for Women recognises that research is a key pathway for development innovation and to inform policy-making and program delivery.

Research will focus on key sector research gaps (Type 1 Research Awards) and on knowledge gaps associated with CSOs implementation of WASH activities (Type 2 Research Awards).

Water for Women recently called for proposals for Type 2 Research Awards with 46 research organisations from around the world responding with proposals. 

Following a comprehensive evaluation process, six research proposals were selected for funding.
