Governance Research on Water Systems (GROWS)
Partnership with the Global Environment and Technology Foundation and The Ohio State University funded by USAID
The goal of the GROWS project is to identify and disseminate innovative governance models and tools that will help accelerate eliminating extreme poverty in sub-Saharan Africa. By evaluating water system governance in Tanzania, Kenya, and Uganda, Global Partners’ services will help managers continually learn about and from the internal and external realities of the GROWS program, thus building an iterative learning process into GROWS systems. To support this project, Global Partners is conducting a mixed-methods assessment using a quantitative difference-in-difference methodology as well as qualitative results from remote key informant surveys and surveys distributed through SMS technology to determine the added value of using additional technologies and innovative management strategies in addition to traditional service providers on governance outcomes.
