Community Development Fund (CDF) Review - Rural Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene Programme
The Ministry of Foreign Affaires supports the Rural Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene Programme – Planning Phase, (WASH-BG) in Ethiopia.
The overall objective of the programme is “universal access to improved water source, sanitation and hygiene in Benishangul-Gumuz”.
Verifyable indicators for achieving this objective are:
- All rural people in Benishangul-Gumuz have maximum distance of 1.5 km to water point,
- Availability of at least 15 liters a person a day and water quality meeting the national standards; and
- All rural people in Benishangul-Gumuz have at least the lowest cost latrine that ensures a clean and healthful living environment both at home and in the neighbourhood of users.
This project started with 15 month long Planning Phase to establish a “sound basis for expansion of the CDF approach in water point development in Benishangul-Gumuz to the extent possible”. This assignment is one of the short-term missions carried out during the planning phase.
