Directory of Dutch-related activities in Ethiopia

This directory was developed by IRC for the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Addis Ababa. It's aim is simple: to tell you about some of the exciting people and organisations with Dutch links that are working to address water-related challenges in Ethiopia.

The directory provides you with information about these organisations and their activities. As well as basic information and contact details, many entries include a detailed interview providing insights about the organisations work, ideas and opinions. Do get in touch with the organisations featured and make links with your own work.

The directory is not an 'IRC directory' and we would welcome re-posting of the information on other websites. Inclusion in the directory does not imply any endorsement by IRC or the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands of the products and services offered by the featured organisations.

If you have comments on the directory or would like your work or organisation to be included please contact John Butterworth at IRC (

The Dutch embassy in Addis also organise regular learning-focused seminars on its water-related work in the country. These are usually held every 6 months. Contact Bouwe-Jan Smeding for more details (
