This research examines the risks and benefits associated with self-supplied water sources used by poor households, particularly with respect to water quality and supply availability throughout the year.
Research partners will jointly identify ways for governments and development partners to engage with self-supplied water services, towards a transition to safely-managed water services for all.
The research involves partnerships between UTS Institute for Sustainable Futures, Universitas Indonesia, the University of the South Pacific, UNICEF and government partners.
