WASH Research Awards 

WASH Research Awards provide funds for high-quality, policy-relevant research that is available, accessible and communicated to the policy development and program design community in Australia, Asia and the Pacific and the global WASH sector.  Research undertaken will focus on: 

(TYPE 1 AWARDS) Key sector research gaps

(TYPE 2 AWARDS) Knowledge gaps associated with CSO implementation towards the outcomes of the Water for Women Fund.  

All research processes will be expected to be gender and socially inclusive. The geographic scope of the Research Component will be the Asia and Pacific region. 

WASH Research Awards calls for partners that engage in:

  • Quality research engagement, partnerships and networks
  • Quality research capacity building
  • Quality research management, processes and outputs 

Water for Women will work with a multitude of partners when carrying out research throughout the five years of the Fund.

Initially, six (Type 2) research proposals were selected in June 2018 to be funded under Water for Women. Research for these initial six projects will be undertaken over two to three years from July 2018. A further five (Type 1) research proposals were announced in March 2019.
