Securing Water for Food: A Grand Challenge for Development (SWFF) has now completed six years of activity and has come to an end. The Securing Water for Food program exceeded the expected outcomes envisioned when the program was created. This has now been validated by the final SWFF external program evaluation from Dexis, who noted SWFF strongly contributed to outcomes: analysis of surveys find 60 percent of end-users/customers have improved access to water and 60 percent to water efficiency directly due to SWFF’s innovations. While the inclusion of the vulnerable depends on the business model, very poor groups and women are universally included and impacted by innovations.
