Politics and Governance of Water and Sanitation

Our work

Water flows through every global development challenge.  We focus on the power, resources and politics that shapes how water is distributed and governed through human societies.  Our work is necessarily interdisciplinary  and we work closely with the School of Civil Engineering and School of Earth and Environment

We have an active water politics, policy and governance research group including academic staff, PhD researchers and affiliated researchers and practitioners.
