The National WASH Capacity Development Guideline serves as a comprehensive roadmap for enhancing the capacities of the WASH sector and supporting actors in Ethiopia. It aims to operationalise Ethiopia’s WASH policies, strategies, and guidelines by identifying key existing WASH capacities and providing targeted capacity building. The guideline is designed to empower government entities with effective decision-making skills, enabling them to manage and sustain WASH activities and services. It also guides the response to the capacity needs of all actors involved in the program, including the coordination structures, WASH institutions, and private sectors at federal, regional, zonal, woreda, and community levels, with a particular focus on regions requiring special attention. The objectives of the guideline are twofold: to improve the skills and capacities of the WASH sector programs for national capacity development, and to provide guidance for sector actors, including policy makers, strategic developers, and donors, on capacity development in WASH. This guidance aims to ensure a coordinated, evidence-based, harmonised, comprehensive, and sustainable approach to capacity development in the WASH sector.
