Building Capstone Three

Innovation in future management of water, sanitation and hygiene

This programme will examine the ways in which water security and management, sanitation and hygiene systems need to, and can be (re)configured across rural and urban contexts to help preserve health, including within contexts of future pandemics. Evidence generation will seek to advance and inform both policy and programming.

We have made progress, together with partners, toward the co-creation of research agendas that genuinely reflect priority evidence needs on the ground. For WASH, this process was concluded in a recent workshop (7-11 March) convened through the Centre for Collaboration in Africa, University of Stellenbosch and in conjunction with APHRC. An earlier WASH workshop was held on 28 October in conjunction with the AUC, as well as a session at the African Girls Summit in Niamey, Niger, on 18 November 2021.
