The University of Oxford under the leadership of Prof. Robert Hope is leading a consortium that is carrying out research related to the DFID funded programme termed "Improving Water Security for the Poor". The programme aims to:

1) increase water security for 2.5 – 5 million poor people by 2021,

2) develop and test an interdisciplinary risk-based framework,

3) establish Water Security Observatories in Africa and Asia, focusing on Fragile States,

4) provide new and replicable evidence-based metrics, tools and approaches required at operational scales,

5) generate and share new knowledge in over 60 open-access scientific papers,

6) build capacity and collaboration within the global consortium, and

7) competitively commission up to 30 per cent of the funds.


The programme will run over a period of  at least 7 years and will support 88 international researchers, including 15 PhD students and 14 post-doctoral researchers, working for 220 person years to improve water security outcomes for the poor in Africa and South Asia.
