This policy paper analyses climate resilient WASH (Water, Sanitation and Hygiene) at global, national, and local levels, focussing on the WASH SDG programme in Negelle Arsi and Shashamane woredas (districts), Ethiopia. This has resulted in three key messages for designing policies and planning implementation: (1) You cannot build community resilience to climate change without ensuring resilient access to water, including for the most basic needs – drinking, sanitation, and hygiene; (2) Climate Resilient WASH can only be achieved if Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) and WASH are coordinated and taken up jointly; and (3) Local led adaptation can be a strong driver for achieving SDG 6 target holistically.
