Innovations for Water and Development

Innovations for Water and Development
  • UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education. February 2015
  • This booklet contains 50 innovative solutions in the field of water and development. The innovations were created with their global partnership network to develop, implement and validate novel solutions that ultimately aim to improve the quality of life on the planet. Innovations are often of a technological nature, but their adoption also has social, economic, environmental, governance, institutional and political dimensions. The research-based innovations originate from the six research themes of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization Institute for Water Education (UNESCO-IHE) that are aligned with relevant international and national science programmes. In addition, UNESCO-IHE has also developed a number of innovative products concerning education and capacity development.
