Research Activities

1)      REACH Water Security Research Project, funded by DFID

REACH is a seven-year, global programme of research (2015-2022) led by Oxford University and funded with UK aid from the UK government.

REACH is a new global research programme to improve water security for the poor by delivering world-class science that transforms policy and practice.

1)      AfriWatSan project launched in Dakar, Sénégal [PRESS RELEASE]

AfriWatSan, a new 5-year research and capacity-strengthening project seeking to sustain low-cost, on-site water supplies and sanitation systems in urban Africa, was launched last week in Dakar, Sénégal.  The project, funded under Africa Capacity Building Initiative of The Royal Society and UK government’s Department for International Development, is an inter-disciplinary collaboration of scientists from University College London (UK), Université Cheikh Anta Diop (Sénégal), University of Nairobi (Kenya) and Makerere University (Uganda).

The AfriWatSan project recognises that pursuit of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (6.1 & 6.2) of universal and equitable access to safe water and sanitation in African cities depends on conjunctive use of the subsurface as both a supply of potable water and store of faecal waste. AfriWatSan, which is one of the first multi-scale (town – city – mega-city) analyses of urban groundwater and sanitation and their links to human health in Sub-Saharan Africa, aims to provide the scientific evidence, policies and practices to sustain the quality and quantity of groundwater abstracted for urban water supplies and to reconcile this with use of the subsurface for low-cost sanitation.

  • Capacity Building in Integrated Water Resource Management :

    Nile IWRMnet is an open network with the purpose to promote scaling up of IWRM knowledge in the Nile Basin countries, and strengthening cooperation in capacity building for IWRM. The objective of the Nile IWRM net is to contribute to the implementation of country capacity building plans, and to the cooperative programme of action between Cap-Net and GWP that supports national IWRM plans and implementation strategies.

  • Climate Change Impacts on Water Resources:
    Analysis and implications of changes in water resources with time. Possible impact of catchment degradation and climate change to river flow and water availablility.
  • Solid Waste Management:
    Solid waste management practice and efficiency in developing countries. Uncollected waste and its impact. Impact of uncollected waste on surface and ground water resources.
  • Flood Management:
    Nile Basin Capacity Building Network for River Engineering Integrated research project on Flood Management in the Nzoia and Kagera River Basins. 
  • International Research:
    Country Consultant DEWFORA EU FP-7 Program; Kenya
