Access to water can contribute to economic growth. This is especially the case when people use water for multiple uses, including productive uses, like watering livestock, irrigation and small scale industry. Whether or not this economic growth is only limited to certain groups of people or is equitably distributed, will depend on a large number of factors. Under the RiPPLE's Growth Long-term Action research Studies (LARS), the Equity sub-LARS will focus on how equitable water services and water for multiple uses contribute to equitable benefits.
