WASHCost Andhra Pradesh (India) results

Published on: 20/08/2014

WASHCost India was implemented in the state of Andhra Pradesh. Over the last 25 years, Andhra Pradesh moved towards the forefront of developing and piloting innovative approaches to WASH service delivery and watershed development. WASHCost India aimed to build on this accumulated knowledge and expertise.

Working in close cooperation with the Department of Rural Water Supply and Sanitation, the lead partner for WASHCost India was the Centre for Economic and Social Studies (CESS). The other two partners were the Watershed Support Services and Activities Network (WASSAN) and the Livelihoods and Natural Resource Management Institute (LNRMI). The list of publication titles below compiles selected research outputs of the team. To access titles, scroll down below to Useful links and visit corresponding publication series.
