Through research, we provide leadership and direction in tackling critical knowledge gaps that hamper progress in water, sanitation, health and development. We develop a collaborative, forward-thinking research program built around the most urgent, important problems identified by our partners, both in the US and across developing and developed nations. We proactively identify knowledge gaps and act early on emerging issues. Having published more than 60 scientific papers in our first four years, our research contributes to evidence-based decisions in the scientific, policy and practitioner communities domestically and internationally. From 2010-2014, we received 51 funded grants and awards from 37 different awarding bodies, ranging from $1,500 to $1.5 million, to a total value of $5.69 million.
