Abstract: In terms of research in Africa, there are two schools of thought. The first is "Water research and researchers in Africa receive adequately funding", and the second is "Water research and researchers in Africa are not well funded". Interestingly, none of these two statements is entirely true because the experiences of researchers across the continent are poles apart. Water research in Africa, therefore, cannot be judged under the same blanket.
