Climate, Water and Sanitation Research
Research Calls 2020
- Research is a key pathway for development innovation and to inform policy-making and program delivery. Investments in research facilitate access to diverse partnerships and networks and contributing toward Bassmati Innovation Community’s mission, vision and objectives.
- Providing access to high-quality research and analysis that addresses key climate, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sectors’ gaps assists governments, partners, INGOs, private sector and civil society to improve access to these essential services.
As part of Bassmati Innovation Community efforts to strengthen and elevate action on climate change, water scarcity and key WASH challenges, we are launching a Research Funding Program in this area.
