The Water Institute at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (USA) has published the seventh edition of their WaSH Policy Research Digest. The focus is on Intermittent Water Supply. Intermittent water supply, or water provided to users on a discontinuous basis, is common in many countries. In fact, in some it is the norm rather than the exception. Interruptions in water supply can last for hours or even days, with the time that water is unavailable exceeding the time that it is available.
Key Policy and Programmatic Takeaways
The Digests are an easy-to-access knowledge and information resource, helping users navigate the myriad of (often cumbersome, and sometimes conflicting) research journals and publications to extract relevant policy advice.
Published quarterly, the Digests comprises a review of a recent article or report, and a short literature review on a WaSH topic. It provides objective, concise, and timely information to advise WaSH policy development.
