Fragmentation and equity in water service provision

Project Summary

Drinking water service provision poses many technical and financial challenges. Local communities that lack fiscal capacity to make necessary infrastructure investments struggle to maintain safe water supplies. This project aims to understand what shapes differential service outcomes, and how to overcome these challenges.

High Volume Hydraulic Fracturing Advocacy

Project Summary

Marginalized individuals are less likely to participate or have their interests represented in political processes than historically privileged individuals. Interest groups are considered the best means to address this gap, but there is little research on the role of interest groups in mobilizing people to directly participate in political processes, particularly in marginalized communities.
