Aquaya’s consulting services are informed by our research and development programs.

Improving the Sanitation Supply Chain

Aquaya designs and administers field studies to evaluate supply and demand for key sanitation products in rural communities. Many leading efforts at improving rural sanitation propose relying on market forces for sufficient distribution of emerging sanitation products, but the sector has yet to conduct a comprehensive study evaluating the degree to which supply and demand fueled by the market alone is actually feasible in some of the poorest areas of the world. Aquaya is filing this information gap and providing valuable data to inform future decision-making on sanitation policies.

Evaluating Marketing Strategies for Rural Sanitation Products

In collaboration with the Water and Sanitation Program of the World Bank Aquaya is developing a randomized controlled trial in rural Kenya that will compare different marketing strategies for plastic latrine slabs and assess their health benefits.

The Market for Rural Sanitation

With the support of the Water and Sanitation Program of the World Bank, Aquaya launched a comprehensive research study to evaluate supply and demand for latrine slabs in rural Tanzania.

ICT for Data Management

Aquaya advises on data management tools that support performance monitoring, survey efforts, and evaluations. Where existing open source software tools are appropriate, we optimize and configure these tools to support our clients’ needs. In addition, Aquaya builds tools in-house when we identify software gaps.
