Institutions
Themes

WaterAid invites research proposals from applicants based in, or belonging to, low or lower-middle income countries, on themes such as:
Occupational health and safety: access to PPE and its use, safety protocols, mechanisation of sanitation work, COVID risks
Labour rights, wages, working conditions, access to social security, and institutional arrangements for engaging workers (the modalities of contracts between employers and sanitation workers, and management of these contracts)
Sustainable livelihoods, rehabilitation, business models
Social challenges and the root causes of marginalisation, discrimination and exclusion (such as caste or ethnic identity), as well as the empowerment and mobilisation of sanitation workers
Gender dimensions, disparities and intersectionality
Legal frameworks, policies, regulations, standard operating procedures and their enforcement
Interventions to support sanitation workers, good practices and learnings
Research support offered
The support offered to selected students includes: Monetary support to cover research costs: up to US$2,000 and up to US$6,000 each for Master’s and Doctoral students respectively. This can include research costs such as: accessing data/publications, interpreters, travel, meetings, communication, stationery, equipment, etc. However, the monetary support would not entail any stipend/scholarship for the students themselves.
Thematic mentorship support: As a complement to the existing supervisory support available to the students from their institutions, students would have the option to be connected to a thematic expert on sanitation workers, who would provide inputs at various stages of the research. Students will also be offered opportunities to network with their peers, in order to discuss, share and colearn among themselves.
Publication support: Support with the fee for publishing their research paper in fully Open Access journals or journals which have committed to fully transition to Open Access.
