Invited participants can attend a day-long seminar on Ethiopia’s National WASH Inventory. The African Ministers’ Council on Water (AMCOW) will use the week of the symposium to convene with international programmes such as the Joint Monitoring Programme (JMP) to discuss how monitoring and evaluation of WASH services can improve in the region.
