Accountability for Water is a new programme of action & research to improve water governance & water service delivery. Too often good policies, wise laws and promising programmes have failed because of weak accountability.

To harness the potential of stronger accountability we need to know ‘what works and why?’ in different water management contexts.

We invite you to join us and support our three goals for water security:

  • Knowledge generation: Sector leaders supported to do high-value research
  • Outreach and uptake: Sharing findings through meetings, publications and online
  • Ensuring legacy: Developing strategies, support networks and implementation plans

Become a Host Organisation

Any organisation with an interest in accountability can be a host organisation-government agencies, utilities, civil society or researchers. With a PRF research grant you can support a member of your team to complete research on your priority accountability issue.

Become a Professional Research Fellow

Fellows will be professionals who sit within a host organisation who are capable of carrying out original research, with training & mentoring support from a wide range of organisations and experts including leading researchers. Learning Partners are welcome to join. Contact us to receive regular updates and share your learning with us.

Our 9-week remote-learning masterclass on Accountability for Water begins on 16th November 2020. Participants will receive a certificate of attendance and coaching to develop a Research Fellowship Proposal for an 18 month research grant. To register interest and find out more, and to register for our launch event on 5th November 2020 (online -2pm EAT)
