On 4 September, REACH hosted a collaborative meeting on East-African climate, in collaboration with AfricanSWIFT, the IMPALA and HyCristal FCFA projects. Here's a summary from the meetings and key messages from ECRs.
This year’s World Water Week in Stockholm recognised the importance of finance and institutions in shaping global priorities for water policy and practice. Early Career Researchers Dr Sonia Hoque, Dr Johanna Koehler and Cliff Nyaga share their insights on these themes.
REACH researchers find that the future of Ethiopia's Awash basin will be hotter, drier and more water scarce - which could have serious consequences for people and the economy. Developing climate-resilient policies will be critical to ensure a prosperous and sustainable future for all.
Our research is focused on fragile states in Africa and South Asia, regions where water security challenges are greatest and poverty most acute. We are setting up ‘Water Security Observatories’ in Bangladesh, Ethiopia and Kenya to implement in-depth interdisciplinary research on water security and poverty. Findings will be relevant for scaling up and adapting to other countries and contexts.Learn more
Our research takes an innovative, interdisciplinary, risk-based approach, looking at water security risks and poverty reduction across three themes: resource sustainability, inclusive services and sustainable growth. The evidence we produce will help guide investment and design policies and practices that benefit the poor.Learn more
We are partnering with UNICEF global, regional and country offices to make sure that our science informs their programmes of work and changes lives. UNICEF has over 100 offices worldwide and a global mandate to improve water supply, sanitation and hygiene for the poor.Learn more
REACH is funding additional research and building partnerships with other practitioners, enterprises and researchers passionate about water security and poverty reduction in Africa and South Asia. During the course of the programme we will be making calls for research to support our core programme.Learn more
Our latest conference was held in Oxford in March 2019.
