Highlights

Since 2013, Ethiopia has established a unique Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) sector-wide approach (SWAp) under the umbrella of the ONEWASH National Programme (OWNP), which brings together ministries, development partners, academia and civil society organisations (CSOs) to a common goal of one plan, one budget, and one report.

According to the OWNP phase I results, during the period from October 2013 to July 2017:

  • 18.7 million people gained access to water supplies through the construction of 38,336 different types of water supply schemes
  • 11 million people became Open Defecation Free (ODF) and the practice of open defecation reduced from 44 per cent to 29 per cent
  • 1,280 school WASH facilities were constructed under the OWNP-Consolidated WASH Account
