URBAN WASH: Call for experts with local knowledge of water and sanitation successes or innovations

Background URBAN WASH

URBAN-WASH is a 5-year project (2021-2026), led by Tetra Tech, that will generate evidence to promote impactful, sustainable, equitable, and climate-resilient WASH policies and programming in urban and periurban areas, partnering with local, regional, and global stakeholders to conduct implementation research and ensure broad uptake of lessons learned. It focuses on urban WASH policies and regulations, sustainable small and informal service provision, and improving source water protection.

This research and learning program includes a comparative case study analysis of 12 cities in order to identify the key institutional and regulatory “ingredients” for cities to make meaningful progress towards safe water and sanitation for all. We have identified a number of cities with proven models for sustained progress in water or sanitation, and other cities that are implementing innovative approaches to advance water or sanitation today.

URBAN WASH Key Informant Cities: Bangkok, Thailand; Maputo, Mozambique; Phnom Penh, Cambodia; Lusaka, Zambia; Ahmedabad, India; Nairobi, Kenya; Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire; Warangal, India; Cairo, Egypt; San Fernando, Philippines; Porto Alegre, Brazil; Faridpur, Bangladesh

Work With Us

We are looking to interview experts with local experience and insights who can help us tell the stories of these cities, with the goal of understanding what factors led them to become historic successes or pioneering frontiers for progress within urban water and sanitation.

We are especially interested in speaking with people who have worked in government positions or with government stakeholders to improve water and sanitation provision in our selected case study cities. This includes current or former policy-makers, regulators, service providers, academics, donors, or members of community-based organizations working on WASH.

If you would be interested in being interviewed, please reach out to Aquaya, a member of the URBAN WASH team at

This project is in collaboration with USAID and Tetra Tech International Development.
