I am involved in this Universities WaSH Consortium and have been asked to post this item. It is a survey for USA universities working in the field of global water, sanitation and hygiene (WaSH). It will take just a few minutes of your time.
If you are not directly involved in WaSH activities, I would greatly appreciate it if you would forward the survey link to those who are currently active in those activities at your university.
Researchers at U.S.-based universities and organizations that are concerned with water, sanitation, and hygiene challenges in developing countries have begun to explore ways to expand, better coordinate, and increase support for universities’ international WaSH activities. They recently formed the Consortium of US Universities and Global Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene to meet these aims, and have developed this survey to identify and aggregate universities’ WaSH activities and partnerships in developing countries. U.S. Government agencies, such as the U.S. Department of State and USAID, have also become increasingly interested in the contributions that U.S. universities make to WASH in developing countries, and information from this survey may help support their efforts to strengthen U.S. Government WaSH activities.
This link will lead you to a very brief survey that is intended to collect preliminary information about faculty and student engagement in drinking water, sanitation, and/or hygiene activities.
The information from the survey will be housed in an accessible online database that will be able to be searched by U.S. university, type of WaSH project, and country of WaSH activity. The information you provide in responding to this survey will be used for this purpose. Responding to the survey in no way implies a commitment to the Consortium’s activities or a request for funding.
If you have any questions comments or concerns about the survey or results please contact Alison Kernohan (also at 1 404 979-9444).
Thank you in advance for your contributions to this study.
