Learning from longterm strategic planning in a district

This paper details the steps taken in Ethiopia, by the Millennium Water Alliance (MWA) and member partners, to support three district (woreda) governments in a long-term strategic planning process. The process resulted in ambitious plans going through 2030 for how to achieve full coverage across entire districts. The plans include life cycle costing, use of new approaches to improve serve delivery levels, assumptions about costs, population growth, number of users per technology, etc. This paper looks at the process that was envisioned versus the process as it unfolded in reality and provides lessons learned and recommendations. Partners whose work and collaborative efforts contributed to the paper include: CARE, Catholic Relief Services, Food for the Hungry, Helvetas, IRC, WaterAid and World Vision. Funding for this work was provided by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation.

Abstract

This paper details the steps taken in Ethiopia, by the Millennium Water Alliance (MWA) and member partners, to support three district (woreda) governments in a long-term strategic planning process. The process resulted in ambitious plans going through 2030 for how to achieve full coverage across entire districts. The plans include life cycle costing, use of new approaches to improve serve delivery levels, assumptions about costs, population growth, number of users per technology, etc. This paper looks at the process that was envisioned versus the process as it unfolded in reality and provides lessons learned and recommendations. Partners whose work and collaborative efforts contributed to the paper include: CARE, Catholic Relief Services, Food for the Hungry, Helvetas, IRC, WaterAid and World Vision. Funding for this work was provided by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation.
