Collectively, the WASH team have an acknowledged reputation in the sector for research and development initiatives. We also have a long history of developing products which are now used by many agencies, including the Jerry Bucket, steel water tanks and handwashing stand.

We also work to develop new approaches including how to measure quality in humanitarian responses, tiger worm toilets and solar powered water pumping
