The objective of this learning note is to document the process and early results of Transform WASH capacity building activities so that lessons can be identified and the approach can be improved and refined.

Data collected included document reviews and key informant interviews on how the project facilitated capacity building at the sub-national level. Data was then analyzed, and key themes, insights and recommendations were compiled. These insights may be of use to others involved in government capacity building activities to improve WASH governance and management capacity.

USAID TRANSFORM WASH sets out to improve water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) outcomes in Ethiopia by increasing access to and sustained use of a wide spectrum of affordable WASH products and services, with a focus on sanitation. It does so by transforming the market for low-cost, high quality WASH products and services: stimulating demand at community level, strengthening supply chains, and building the enabling environment for a vibrant private market.

USAID TRANSFORM WASH is a USAID-funded project implemented by PSI in collaboration with SNV, Plan International, and IRC. The consortium is working closely with government agencies including the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Water, Irrigation and Electricity, the National WASH Coordination Office and regional governments.
