Tetra Tech has been awarded a five-year, $22 million, single-award global contract to improve sustainable water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) and promote climate-resilient water resource management (WRM) by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
Tetra Tech’s team of water and sanitation experts and researchers will provide technical services to support the USAID Urban Resilience by Building partnerships and Applying New evidence in WASH (URBAN WASH) program. Our teams will generate evidence for more impactful, sustainable, equitable, and climate-resilient WASH and WRM policy and programming in urban and peri-urban areas as well as support high-impact WASH and WRM interventions through collaboration with researchers, the private sector, civil society groups, government bodies, and multilateral institutions.
“Climate change poses significant challenges to provide safe and reliable water supplies for communities,” said Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech Chairman and CEO. “Tetra Tech has supported USAID to improve sustainable and equitable access to water and sanitation in developing countries for more than 40 years and we look forward to continuing to support USAID to enhance access to reliable water and sanitation services in urban settings worldwide.”
