For nearly a decade, ME&A supported the USAID Water Office’s communications and knowledge management needs with research, analysis, writing, editing, tracking, and strategic planning through the Water Sector Communications and Knowledge Management (WS/CKM) Program.
ME&A’s WS/CKM program team designed, wrote, and published the e-magazine Global Waters to share the challenges, opportunities, approaches, and lessons learned in USAID water-related efforts. The magazine featured in-depth articles exploring solutions to the ongoing water crisis, opinion pieces by top development professionals, and first-hand accounts from stakeholders and beneficiaries in the field.
ME&A also supported USAID’s worldwide water projects portfolio across a multimedia spectrum. In addition to publishing Global Waters, ME&A produced videos, the USAID Water Office public website, and many reports to Congress on water-related issues. From 2006 to 2015, ME&A published the Senator Paul Simon Water for the Poor Act: Report to Congress and the annual Safeguarding the World’s Water report. Samples are below and the full collection is available at the U.S. Department of State website (Paul Simon reports) and USAID website (Safeguarding reports).
