Oxfam water report

I wrote a summary report for Oxfam on water supply systems in Nepal.

Oxfam wanted to make the technical content of a longer report engaging and accessible for a wider audience.

I worked with a freelance designer, Robin Stannard, to bring out the highlights of the document and present them in a clear and visual way.

The publication is now being used by water practitioners around the world to improve the sustainability of water supply systems.

UNICEF drinking water in schools report

I edited a major report for UNICEF on the state of school water, sanitation and hygiene around the world.

The 84 page publication needed the authority to persuade global decision makers to act. So accuracy, consistency and clarity were vital.

I edited the draft document in line with UNICEF’s style guide, making the language more accessible while keeping in specialist terms and an expert tone of voice.

The report has now been published and is influencing action on school water, sanitation and hygiene around the world, changing the lives of children everywhere.

WaterAid MP briefing

I edited a WaterAid briefing for MPs on the Great Stink of 1858 and the lessons we could learn for today’s sanitation crisis.

The briefing needed to get across a combination of historical fact and modern context quickly and creatively for busy politicians at a stunt outside Parliament.

I came up with the concept and wrote the copy for the cover page - a half page flap and interchangeable text that communicated the connection between 1858 and the modern day.

It was well received, with one MP saying it was the most interesting publication he’d been given by a non-profit organisation.
