Beyond Access: Comparative Analysis of Non-Material Dimensions of Water Insecurities
Our project aims to address this gap to better capture and understand non-material aspects that might be important as ‘conversion factors’ to enable capabilities and entitlements to overcome household water insecurity.
Water Insecurity Driving Food Insecurity [“WI>FI”]
In the WI>FI project we are investigating explicitly the conditions under which household food insecurity might be accounted for by water insecurity.
Water Insecurity, Hygiene & Food Insecurity in Amhara, Ethiopia

Urban Water Provisioning Systems and HWISE
Households in the urban periphery access water through complex systems of formal and informal water technologies, practices, institutions, and organizational forms.
Global Ethnohydrology Study
The Global Ethnohydrology Study is a transdisciplinary multi-year, multi-site program of research that examines the range of variation in local ecological knowledge of water issues, also known as “ethnohydrology.”
HWISE Scale and Development
We developed the Household Water Insecurity Experiences (HWISE) study to develop a tool to measure water insecurity at the the household level.
