Aquaya’s research and development initiatives address two fundamental questions of safe water delivery:
1) How can we strengthen the collection and application of data?
2) Can local entrepreneurship fill gaps in underserved areas?

Data Collection and Application

Accurate information is important for evaluating services delivery, improving efficiencies, and targeting resources.  Water sector data, however, are limited in much of the developing world.  

The objectives of our research are to develop and apply appropriate technologies and best practices that support the integration of data into water management programs.
