The Millennium Water Alliance-Ethiopia Programme (MWA-EP) is supporting local (woreda) governments through its member INGOs to better plan for, promote and monitor Self-supply as part of mainstream water sector activities. This includes an integrated programme looking at both supply and demand of relevant products and services, and featuring activities intended to introduce new technology, build up local private sector capacity and supply chains and improve access to finance amongst others. By assessing the success factors and barriers to Self-supply acceleration the initiative is intended to help government strengthen systems for encouraging and monitoring the adoption of Self-supply.
This poster presents some results of the baseline survey in Omo Nada woreda, Oromia Region. Activities by MWA-EP in this woreda are supported by World Vision. Aqua for All are also supporting activities promoting local private sector development.
