Center for Global Safe Water at Emory: Expanded Partnership and Research Activities

Christine MoeThrough its Center for Global Safe Water (CGSW), Emory works to improve water and sanitation around the world. CGSW partners with water and sanitation experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), CARE, The Carter Center, and The Georgia Institute of Technology. It is a unique consortium of experts that focuses on improving drinking water quality, sanitation, and hygiene around the world through applied research, evaluation, and training.

With EGHI support, CGSW has strengthened and expanded its international and Atlanta-based partnerships and conducted targeted research activities at its international field sites in Kenya and Bolivia. Research activities include: 1) characterizing disparities in water and sanitation access and the underlying reasons for them; 2) examining disease transmission in developing country environments to inform the development of effective water, sanitation, and hygiene interventions; and 3) examining how market-based approaches can be used effectively to provide large-scale, sustainable water and sanitation services. CGSW uses the findings of its research to contribute to the scientific evidence base, influence water and sanitation implementation policies, and develop proposals for large-scale research and implementation projects to test innovative approaches to water, sanitation, and hygiene.
