50 innovative solutions for water & development

UNESCO-IHE recently published a booklet containing 50 innovative solutions in the field of water & development. The innovations were created with its global partnership network to develop, implement and validate novel solutions that ultimately aim to improve the quality of life on our planet.

"Our 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 UNESCO-IHE that are well 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. A common goal of the Institute staff is to maximize valorisation, defined as the utilization/uptake of research results to create socio-economic value, and this is high on the Institute’s agenda", states UNESCO-IHE's website.
