We’re a mixed bunch here at Akvo, and our diversity is key to our success. The team is made up of over 100 bright minds and passionate hearts, from software developers to monitoring and evaluation specialists; from data scientists to water quality experts.

A thorough understanding of local context is key in providing partners with the best possible support. That’s why we have regional hubs on five continents to provide local knowledge and expertise to our partners. The rest of our team work remotely from places like Sweden, Bangladesh, Colombia, Spain, Australia, the United Kingdom, Nepal and Uganda.
