BPD is the only non-profit organisation solely specialising in improving relationships between partners in the water and sanitation sectors. We are known for developing neutral and objective cutting edge thinking and offering innovative ‘out of the box’ solutions to partnership and institutional issues. BPD has been described as an ‘ideas factory’, ‘dynamic thought leader’ and ‘trend spotter’.
In addition to working with more than 50 partnerships to date, BPD has supported hundreds of individuals and organisations to work more effectively through our capacity building work. This is weaved through each of our three core activities and extends widely as participants are encouraged to share their learning with others. Our open access document library stocks over 150 widely referenced publications.
As a small team, BPD has the flexibility to be creative and responsive to sector needs. With our low proportion of overheads to programme costs, BPD provides excellent value for money.
BPD promotes approaches to water and sanitation service delivery that are economically, environmentally, socially and technically viable. By encouraging more robust planning and more open
communications, we help partnerships create more sustainable service delivery models.
