The MWA has been implementing water, sanitation, and hygiene programmes in 
Ethiopia since 2004 and will have invested nearly $20 million in the sector by mid-
2014. By 2015, MWA and the 11 MWA members and numerous local partners involved 
in the MWA-EP will have reached more than one million rural Ethiopians with access to 
integrated water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services. To achieve this kind of 
collective impact, all participants must have a shared vision for change and a shared 
measurement system. In 2010, all MWA-EP partners agreed to common definitions, 
policies and strategies. This paper discusses the process required to reach consensus on 
a shared measurement system among multiple, diverse partners, the data collection 
tools and collection methodology, challenges and lessons learned in implementation.
