HWISE Paper Highlight – Frontiers of Household Water Insecurity Metrics: Severity, Adaptation, and Resilience

Four HWISE RCN collaborators recently published a paper in BMJ Global Health that sets the agenda for the next wave of household water insecurity metrics. The article reflects on the current suite of measurements and highlights three core aspects of water insecurity that should inform future research: severity, adaptation, and resilience. The paper also highlights the need to more effectively address assessments of water affordability.

The authors also propose a low-cost, theoretically grounded modification to common water insecurity metrics in order to capture information about severity, adaptation and resilience.
