After an introduction to the global human right to water and sanitation and Ethiopian laws and policies on gender, equity, and social inclusion (GESI), the policy brief focuses specifically on GESI in the Ethiopian WASH sector. Drawing from this information the brief provides GESI policy recommendations for government officials working at the national and woreda (district) level in Ethiopia. These include improving information flow between national, regional, and local levels; improving policy enforcement and regulations; and improving participation from socially excluded groups in WASH decision making including infrastructure design, planning and budget processes.
