Safe Water Network is taking part in pioneering research on pro-poor subsidies, an approach for which there are no guidelines for the rural context. By innovating and testing new modes of service delivery, Safe Water Network will help develop a blueprint for pro-poor subsidies that other service providers can use in the future.
