Dr Catherine Fallon Grasham and Dr Sara de Wit give talks for the session on research impact.

This session explores two projects responding to water provision challenges in two African nations. The cultural and socio-political sensitivities of water security in a development setting, combined with an increasing pressure from funders to measure impact and demonstrate translation of ‘research into action’ create unique challenges and opportunities for interdisciplinary research.
