Transformative digitally enabled programme to improve rural water supply and services in Africa

Led by Oxford, DAWN brings together leading academics from universities in Mali, Tanzania and Zambia with OWN members Alex Money, Rob Hope, Partrick Thomson and Johanna Koehler. Project partners include GSMA Mobile for Development Utilities, RWSN and the Uptime consortium.

Commenting on the launch, Alex Money, Principal Investigator said: “Digital services are enablers of sustainable development. DAWN convenes a powerful network, motivated to improve how rural water services are delivered. Covid-19 throws existing challenges in the sector into sharp relief. Solutions are required urgently, and that’s only possible with collaboration.”

The first stage of the programme runs for one year, and will be followed by a competitive call for a longer-term project. For more details of the grant, click here.
