Fact Sheet

The Women & Water Ripple Effect Study -- Fact Sheet

There is a global connection between women and water. Yet little research exists that fully explores the impact of women’s access to safe water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) — especially through the lens of economic development. In 2018, the Water and Development Alliance (WADA) partnered with Ipsos to develop a framework for understanding the many  ways improved access to WASH can impact women, their families, and communities. Pathways to Empowerment — deemed “Ripple Effects” — were identified, which capture the various ways access to water impacts women across the developing world.
