MetaMeta Research provides consultancy services in water governance. The aim is to combine three things that make consultancy work: deep understanding of the issues; independent and acceptable positioning; and the skills and agency to make processes move.

Groundwater, surface irrigation, spate irrigation, wet watershed management and transboundary water management are the governance fields we have engaged with. We strongly believe in action inquiry. Making things work and learn from it. No distinction between policy and praxis.

MetaMeta coordinates together with Aqua for All and SKAT the SMART Centre group. SMART centres train technicians and entrepreneurs in SMARTechs being low-cost and innovative technologies. The training is in both production and business skills. SMART sands for Simple, Market based, Affordable, Repairable, Technologies.
