This research call is now closed and we will announced the selected research team shortly
This research project was jointly commissioned by REACH and the Urban Sanitation Research Initiative, (a 2017-2020 research programme led by Water & Sanitation for the Urban Poor, WSUP). The project is managed by the Urban Sanitation Research Initiative team with single point-of-contact, but aligns with the broad vision and specific requirements of both research programmes.
The research will investigate citizen and decision-maker attitudes to pollution of watercourses in urban environments in Bangladesh, and attitudes towards regulation to reduce such pollution. It will consider two specific types of pollution, and their associated regulation, namely a) faecal contamination arising from widespread discharge from septic tanks, pit latrines, and hanging toilets to surface drains and water bodies and to subsurface water bodies, and b) industrial discharge to surface and subsurface water bodies.
