The Coca-Cola Africa Foundation (TCCAF) has provided funding support under the Replenish Africa Initiative (RAIN) for Millennium Water Alliance Ethiopia Programme (MWA-EP) partners to 'deepen' their water, sanitation and hygiene interventions. The extra support was used to experiment with new interventions to enhance the benefits of projects in existing programme areas.

One way this was accomplished was by extending projects to supply water for productive as well as domestic uses through an approach called Multiple Use water Services (or MUS). This summary of experiences and lessons learned, based upon two more detailed case studies from southern and northern Ethiopia, aims to share findings and support the further development of integrated approaches to improving water and food security.
