Description

The PRODWAT thematic group was set up in 2003 to work to support better provision of water for household-level productive activities like backyard gardening, livestock keeping and micro-enterprises. These small-scale activities are vital for poor peoples’ livelihoods but they are frequently ignored by the water sector.

Group activities include advocacy and documentation, acting as a think-tank, and action research.

Currently the coordinating partners of the group are the IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre, the International Water Management Institute, the Natural Resources Institute, the Overseas Development Institute, Water Policy Programme, Plan International, WEDC and CINARA.
