BY PROFESSOR TANVI NAGPAL, ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR OF THE SAIS INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
This summer, Professor Tanvi Nagpal was joined by Benjamin Edwards (The Urban Institute, Research Associate) and Rachel Rose (2nd year IDEV student) as they undertook research on municipal funding for pro-poor sanitation in three urban areas in sub-Saharan Africa. The team, affiliated with The Urban Institute, is working on an ongoing practical research project funded by Water and Sanitation for the Urban Poor. The following fieldwork introduces the research carried out by the team this summer. If you have any questions on this work or would like to learn more about urban sanitation, please contact Professor Nagpal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
