Water Services Management


Current Research and Capacity Development Focus

The Water Services Management Group has opted for harmonizing the research and capacity development activities of the group. Where possible, research endeavors and outputs developed by group members feed into the existing educational and capacity development activities.

The research and capacity development activities revolve around five different and interrelated themes. These five themes are:

  1. ‘Pro-poor’ services – service provisioning in low-income areas
  2. Water Supply and Sanitation in Small Towns
  3. Environmental Management and Water Services
  4. Partnerships in the Water Sector
  5. WASH in Emergencies
