Background: In January 2016, The Geneva Water Hub launched a Research Network dealing with the scientific and societal challenges that the water sector is facing. Adopting an interdisciplinary perspective, mostly grounded in social sciences, the Research Network supports studies that consider the diversity of scales and/or geographical areas. Founded upon previous scientific achievements (doctoral thesis, post-doc), the research projects focus on:

- “Policy Challenges and Network Governance in Vietnam's Urban Sanitation Management” by Mi N'Guyen, EAWAG, Switzerland.
