Guidelines for developing a Self-supply acceleration plan for your area

Self-supply, where households or small groups of households take the lead in the development and improvement of their own water supplies is now a recognised approach to realising universal access to safe water in Ethiopia. It has been recognised by the government in a policy guideline, in the WASH Implementation Framework and in the One WASH National Programme. These guidelines will support planning and implementation of activities to enhance Self-supply at regional, zonal and woreda levels. They focus on what can be done by government and its partners to support households in scaling-up and improving Self-supply. This is known as Self-supply acceleration. An integrated approach is encouraged with links made to related efforts in household irrigation, Household Water Treatment and Storage (HWTS), Community-led Total Sanitation and Hygiene (CLTSH) and sanitation marketing amongst others.

Abstract

Self-supply, where households or small groups of households take the lead in the development and improvement of their own water supplies is now a recognised approach to realising universal access to safe water in Ethiopia. It has been recognised by the government in a policy guideline, in the WASH Implementation Framework and in the One WASH National Programme. These guidelines will support planning and implementation of activities to enhance Self-supply at regional, zonal and woreda levels. They focus on what can be done by government and its partners to support households in scaling-up and improving Self-supply. This is known as Self-supply acceleration. An integrated approach is encouraged with links made to related efforts in household irrigation, Household Water Treatment and Storage (HWTS), Community-led Total Sanitation and Hygiene (CLTSH) and sanitation marketing amongst others.
