Research is an important element of Water for Women.  The Water for Women Fund aims to raise the bar in terms of gender and socially inclusive research, analysis, design and program delivery in WASH, and in doing so to lead practice globally.  

Our Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) are delivering gender and socially inclusive WASH projects including research activities, these activities are also inter-linked with other critical development issues such as water resources management (WRM), climate change adaptation (CCA), disaster risk reduction (DRR) and nutrition.  

Supplementing these CSO projects are the WASH Research Awards.  

By including WASH Research Awards in Water for Women, we are contributing to the Water for Women Fund goals and outcomes, in particular: 

Outcome 4. Strengthened use of new evidence, innovation and practice in sustainable gender and inclusive WASH by other CSOs, national and international WASH sector actors. 

By documenting and sharing gender and socially inclusive evidence and effective practices with other CSOs, national and international sector actors, Water for Women will contribute to this outcome.
