We’re on a mission to make the water sector more sustainable, fair and climate resilient. We help water actors collect, analyse, share and reuse water data at scale and build custom digital platforms to drive decision making.
Accelerating progress towards SDG 6
Current challenges in the water sector require a radical shift in how water is governed, managed and valued from local to global scale, including a re-evaluation of human and natural water needs.
This starts by managing data and information as a common good. We envision a future where water data is accurate, open, shared, and reused to achieve maximum impact.
How Akvo can help
We offer data and technology services tailored to your needs and goals, and we bring in sector expertise and local presence to ensure that the work we do is contextually relevant and sustainable.
We help our partners to integrate data and insights from local (WASH service beneficiaries and/or water operators) to global level (national monitoring systems, SDG, JMP).
We support basin authorities and water resource managers to develop data management skills, connect with global monitoring systems, and use information to plan future interventions.
We systematically assess the maturity of data systems and help organisations to provide recommendations and roadmaps on how to effectively build capacity and streamline data flows.
We design and develop digital platforms and ecosystems tailored to specific needs, from impact monitoring to real-time WASH information systems.

Some of our water work
In Guatemala, inequities in access to quality water supply, safe sanitation facilities, and improved nutrition lead to poor health outcomes, especially for Indigenous populations that live in rural areas. USAID’s Integrating Water, Sanitation and Health Services (I-WASH) programme focuses both on improving the public WASH sector and the governance and management of water resources. IWASH […]Integrating water, sanitation and hygiene services in Guatemala
Practicing open defecation (OD) is associated with multiple potentially lethal diseases and illnesses that particularly affect children under the age of 5. Diseases and illnesses include: acute diarrhea, vector-borne diseases, and respiratory infections. All of which may cause stunted growth, malnutrition, and death. Today in Colombia, 1.3 million people practice OD. Since 2020, the Government […]Digitally tracking sanitation solutions in Colombia
The PMERSA project aimed to strengthen food security in the Maradi region of Niger by sustainably increasing agricultural output and productivity through the mobilisation of surface and ground water resources. Funded by the African Development Bank and in partnership with Blackshore, we mapped the impact of the project using innovative space technology and gamification techniques.
