RESEARCH & DESIGN

We conduct research into policy, service delivery and organizational change processes, bringing new insights that can help deliver lasting impact and benefit to the poor and under-served.

Bringing effective service delivery to most marginalised populations often requires new insights into key bottlenecks and a better understanding of incentives and opportunities that can overcome these constraints. In many if not most cases these go beyond the technical challenges of physical infrastructure provision and touch upon the need for adequate (public) finance and subsidy mechanisms, regulation and effective service providers. Aguaconsult has experience of carrying out such research, including a number of WASH related sustainability assessments, policy uptake and looking at organisational change processes and decentralisation across various branches of government. We bring this knowledge and insights into the design of new donor-led programmes and support to governments in the development of new investment programmes.
