About the Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene team

Water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) is the key to unlocking human and economic development.

Water supply, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) are basic services, crucial to human and economic development. For large numbers of the world’s population, however, these services remain out of reach – with WASH infrastructure simply not existing or, where it does exist, being mismanaged. Links between WASH and health systems are often overlooked, but with the right policies in place many countries have seen rapid increases in access to WASH, improved health outcomes, and falling child mortality.

A short history of our leading work in WASH

Supported by more than 350 staff in ten international offices, we have worked on water projects in more than 25 countries since 2012. Our dedicated water team works across all WASH themes with an increasing project focus on the challenge of delivering equitable and sustainable services for all. Our experts specialise in WASH economics, financing strategies including tariff studies, FSM diagnostics and research, and monitoring and evaluation, balanced with practical implementation experience. We have a strong track record in delivering high-quality results for clients including the World Bank, DFID, UNICEF, AfDB, and the Governments of India, Tanzania, Pakistan, and Zambia.
