Payal, Dean, and Diane’s article, “Can collective strategies motivate behavior change to reduce open defecation in rural India?” was recently honored with the Jeroen Ensink Memorial Prize from Waterlines Journal.   See the announcement and full paper here.

The award was established in memory of Jeroen Ensink, an engineer, researcher, and teacher who dedicated his life and work to using research in the WASH sector to improve lives.  We are indeed humbled that the committee felt that our paper contributed in some way to his life’s work, and to the larger work of water and sanitation in the developing world.
