This research explores how access to water and sanitation interacts with the lived experiences of people dwelling on the canals of England and Wales, as part of a wider story of inequality in access to clean drinking water and safe sanitation services around the world.
We are mapping boaters’ experiences of water and sanitation provision, and uncovering stories – from both individuals and the community – of how these services impact on people’s lives.
In the wider academic outputs of this project, we’re exploring the alternative ways that boaters access, store, use, think and feel about water, and analysing how this can help us understand what ‘water security’ means to marginalised groups and individuals.
