The WASH SDG plan for South Ari Woreda has been developed by the planning team drawn from district WASH sector offices of water, education, health, finance, administration, and women and children affairs. To support the planning process, IRC WASH developed Microsoft Excel-based planning tools. The aim of the tools is to support the handling of quantitative data systematically and support the strategic planning and costing
process of going from the current service to the desired, as per the agreed vision. The planning process involved a series of workshops with coaching and evaluation activities in between these workshops led by IRC WASH. The WASH SDG master plan is prepared and owned by the woreda WASH sector offices with technical support from IRC WASH through USAID Sustainable WASH Systems Learning Partnership (SWS).
