Current research projects focus on economic benefits of the productive use of domestic water supplies; strategies to motivate household investment in water, sanitation, and hygiene; synergies between sustainable sanitation planning and both economic development and environmental protection strategies; and the design of post-construction support programs for rural water systems. Professor Davis teaches courses on water and sanitation planning, infrastructure privatization, the theory and practice of sustainable development, and research methods.
