Governance Research on Water Systems (GROWS)

The Governance Research on Water Systems, or GROWS, is a USAID-funded research activity that focused on rural water services as a lens through which to explore the interconnections between good governance and private sector engagement because of the critical role that water plays in community health and economic development. GROWS sought to identify and disseminate innovative governance and private sector-derived models and tools to improve rural water services. The GROWS toolkit is a resource the USAID Africa Bureau developed to help improve planning and coordination between the Democracy, Human Rights and Governance (DRG) and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sectors. The GROWS toolkit is structured into four sections.
