Productive Uses of Water (PRODWAT) Case Study Award 2006

The PRODWAT Case Study Award is open to researchers, practitioners and students working in any development related context: including South America, the Caribbean, Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe. Papers may be submitted by joint or single authors. Case studies should be on the multiple use of water services at the local scale: emphasizing the negative or positive role of productive uses of water at the household/village/local level alongside traditionally recognized domestic uses. Possible topics might include the role of household water supplies in gardening and urban agriculture, for livestock, and for micro-enterprises. Case studies may emphasize technical, social, political, economic or institutional issues in water development and management for multiple uses at the local scale. Applicants can submit at any time before 31 October 2006 and the winning case study will be announced in December 2006. The award will be EUR 1000 and will support further research on the best case study submitted to the PRODWAT website. The successful applicant will be required to submit a short report within six months of the award, including details of how the award was spent and explaining the results of research. A good "simplified" read.
