Research opportunities

Lucy has a particular interest in water supply in challenging environments and protracted humanitarian crises. Through her experiences, she has developed a natural curiosity to understand systems and how we can encourage smarter use of natural resources through a proactive, rather than reactive approach. Lucy aims to support decision-makers, practitioners and researchers with tools and the evidence-base needed to extend climate-resilient water supply services to communities in challenging environments. 

Current activities

Lucy is currently developing her research around water resource management in protracted refugee crises to better understand and reimagine the future of water supply systems in long-term refugee camps.
