Priti Parikh is a chartered civil engineer with eight years of work experience. She has worked on structural engineering, civil engineering and planning projects in both India and the UK, and won the ACE ’s Outstanding Contribution Award for her work in slums and earthquake relief in 2004. Priti is currently a PhD student in Cambridge at the Centre for Sustainable Development looking at the impacts of water and sanitation in the low income settlements of India and South Africa.

This talk will discuss research and demonstrate the impacts of household water and sanitation on health, education, incomes and housing. An outcome of this research is that communities are willing to pay and can generate their own resources to meet the development needs. The talk will also look at the long term community investments generated because of water and sanitation and will touch on the concept of ‘multiplier effect’.

This talk is part of the Seminars on Sustainable Scenarios series.
