RISE Programme

More than one billion people live in informal settlements globally. Over two billion live without basic sanitation. Climate change and rapid population growth in these settlements exacerbate water and sanitation challenges. Polluted water supplies and inadequate sanitation are leading causes of disease in these communities.

RISE aims to provide research-based evidence that a localised, water sensitive approach to revitalising informal settlements can deliver sustainable, cost-effective health and environmental improvements, paving the way for further deployments in the region and globally.

The program intends to reduce both environmental contamination itself and the likelihood of human contact with contaminants. Multiple benefits are anticipated, including improved community health, fewer infections, better intestinal health among children, increased food production, and reduced gender inequality through the provision of secure domestic sanitation facilities and reliable water supplies.
