IRC commissioned the consultant to identify the main constraints to attracting finance to the WASH sector in three countries (Rwanda, Uganda and Ethiopia).

Each country has its own set of macro financing opportunities and challenges and the assessments would make explicit how to overcome the institutional, organisational, legal and financial constraints to attracting more public and private finance to the sector, and particularly in poorly served areas such as the rural water sector.

This report is the assessment of the WASH sector in Ethiopia that follows a mission to Addis Ababa by the consultant, José Frade from 9 to 13 July with the support of Eyob Defere and the IRC Ethiopia office. Interviews were carried out with representatives of the main stakeholders as listed in Appendix 1. A list of the documents made available and consulted is presented in Appendix 2.

The findings are expected to provide the basis for a decision on whether there is scope to undertake actions and develop facilities to attract and mobilise additional financial resources to the sector.
