What do those working in WASH – the funders, innovators and practitioners – think about the sector?

Our Voices of WASH share their thoughts on the importance of innovation, what funders are looking for and what the future holds for the WASH community.

We talk to our very own Anna Skeels as well as Sian White (LSHTM), Torben Holm Larsen (Real Relief / SuperTowel project), Imran Ali (York University / Safe Water for Refugees project), Chris Houston (Grand Challenges Canada), Claire Furlong (IHE Delft / Tiger Worm Toilet project) and Mauricio Cordova (FairCap / FairCap project)

These interviews were recorded at the launch of our Water, Sanitation & Hygiene Innovation Catalogue.
