Making Academic Research Useful for Practitioners

The SaniPath Tool has been developed through rigorous research by Dr. Christine Moe and her team at the Emory University’s Center for Global Safe Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene. However, to date, there has been limited application of the tool and use of the information gathered to inform investments and interventions aimed at improving sanitation. In order to improve the SaniPath Tool, the Emory team formed an Advisory Committee to seek input on how to effectively use the findings and recommendations from the SaniPath Tool to influence urban sanitation investments, policies, and programs to benefit the urban poor. The Advisory Committee is made up of leaders in the urban sanitation field from development banks, universities, and funding agencies as well as government programmers, practitioners, and policy makers.
