In Ethiopia, the government adopted Self-supply as a service delivery model for rural water supply in 2011, publishing subsequently policy guidelines in 2012 and a manual in 2013. The policy proposed two approaches. The Group-led Self-supply approach involves 10 or more households coming together to develop a facility jointly, with up to 50% subsidy towards the capital costs provided by government or NGOs. The other approach is household-led Self-supply, which involves individual households developing their own water supply facilities and fully bearing the capital investment costs.
