Monitoring of WASH in small towns : a catalyst for enhancing capacity of water utilities in Ethiopia

There are various initiatives involved in monitoring small town WASH projects in Ethiopia. These include amongst others the national benchmarks and performance indicators developed by the Water Development Commission, WaterAid Ethiopia's monitoring approach for the 20 Towns Capacity Development Project, and sustainability checks implemented under UNICEF's ONEWASH Plus programme. However, lack of harmonized performance indicators and capacity gap in implementing a data management system at utility level hamper progress. Harmonizing institutionalized monitoring, national benchmarks, improving the data culture and acting upon monitoring results will be essential in order to move forward.

Abstract

There are various initiatives involved in monitoring small town WASH projects in Ethiopia. These include amongst others the national benchmarks and performance indicators developed by the Water Development Commission, WaterAid Ethiopia's monitoring approach for the 20 Towns Capacity Development Project, and sustainability checks implemented under UNICEF's ONEWASH Plus programme. However, lack of harmonized performance indicators and capacity gap in implementing a data management system at utility level hamper progress. Harmonizing institutionalized monitoring, national benchmarks, improving the data culture and acting upon monitoring results will be essential in order to move forward.
