TUT has participated in various projects, form which can be pointed out: Barriers to and conditions for the involvement of private capital and enterprise in water supply and sanitation in Latin America and Africa: seeking economic, social, and environmental sustainability (PRINWASS; EC research project); Improving the quality of urban life through sustainable decision-making on city water system reform (WATERTIME; EC research project); Viable Pricing and Related Governance of Water Services; and Governance of water and environmental services in long-term perspectives (GOWLOP) - A Comparative Study.
Main role in the project
TUT gave their valuable support in the development of a decision making support tool (task 6.1) by providing the scientific models required for the decision making engine. Additionally, they gave an especial contribution in the capacity building of authorities for future implementation and dissemination (task 8.2) and supported in the planning and design of activities sensitive to end users in task 8.1. TUT provided their input in the development of recommendations for future research and technology developments, and prepared at least one article, jointly with CEPAPE, related to the EG4 (Governance and institution).
