CU-Boulder team selected to lead $15 Million USAID Sustainable Wash Systems project

The University of Colorado Boulder has been selected by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to lead a $15.3 million effort to better understand how to improve the sustainability of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) interventions in the developing world. Globally, more than 2.4 billion people lack access to improved sanitation facilities, and 660 million people are without access to safe drinking water.

Over the course of the five-year cooperative agreement, the CU_Boulder research team, including PI Karl Linden, co-PI Amy Javernick-Will,  Rita Klees and Jeff Walters will coordinate the efforts of seven organizations in sub-Saharan Africa and southeast Asia.
