We're making £950,000 available to fund robust research studies that generate practical, comparative evidence around our funded Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) innovations.

Through our WASH Evidence Challenge we will help our strongest WASH innovations – who have successfully carried out small pilots – to adapt, improve and begin their journey to scale.

To be eligible for this Challenge, applications need to be collaborations between our WASH innovators, researchers and humanitarian agencies.

Our WASH Evidence Challenge aims to create:

  1. Evidence to enable scaling,
  2. Innovative research and new evidence for the sector,
  3. Partnerships for humanitarian research and innovation.
