With the causes of drowning varying widely, there is no single solution.
We’ve been working with our partners to find solutions that work for them - solutions that fit the skills and materials available in low-resource communities. We now have six tried-and-tested interventions that can either protect people from the risk of drowning, or rescue them safely from the water.
From understanding the problem to measuring the impact of a particular project, research underpins every new intervention. This section also looks at some of the ways research guides what we do.
