About the entity

IHE Delft Institute for Water Education is the largest international graduate water education facility in the world.

A growing collection of journal publications, training and course materials, toolkits, software applications, policy briefs, videos, podcasts, datasets and more, all related to water and development, are now available at the click of a button, thanks to a new online repository. The resource includes local knowledge developed by partners from low- and middle-income countries spanning multiple regions, in particular, the Middle East, the Horn of Africa and the Sahel.

The Water and Development Partnership Programme of IHE Delft Institute for Water Education created the online output repository to foster inclusive learning and decolonise water knowledge. The repository serves as a valuable hub of resources, pooling together diverse, critical and inspiring content created and shared by more than 150 collaborative projects supported by the programme. 

Designed as a decentralised platform, the repository reflects the core values of the programme. Projects and partners can create unique profiles and add their work independently, yet guided by the programme's support and expertise. An open-source archive, the repository facilitates the sharing of local experiences, stories and insights for project teams from different countries. It offers water researchers, policymakers and other practitioners in the broader water and development community an easy way to access local knowledge.

The repository enables searches based on themes, regions and phases of the programme. It categorises outputs in a manner that reflects the programme’s focus on water justice, not just in terms of access to water and sanitation, but also in relation to the role of water in influencing sustainability for environmental, health, and food systems. Through this approach, users can gain insights into the interlinked issues of water and sustainable development.

The repository also houses outputs published by the programme, including programme-wide learning sessions.

“Creating this output repository symbolises our commitment to just and sustainable water development through collaborative learning and informed decision-making in the water sector,” said Programme Coordinator Jeltsje Kemerink-Seyoum, IHE Delft Associate Professor of Water Governance and Justice. “We encourage all interested to use these rich resources and contribute to the ongoing dialogues on water and development issues.”
