Partners for Water and Sanitation (PAWS) is a DFIDfunded partnership of public, private and government organizations who come together to offer capacity building support to water and sanitation institutions in Ethiopia, Nigeria and South Africa. The PAWS model of capacity building offers a unique opportunity in supporting Ethiopia’s commitment towards an accelerated effort from all stakeholders to achieve the Universal Access Plan. PAWS is offering support to the Ethiopian water sector through training, twinning and technical assistance under a number of strategic programmes. Since 2005, the programme has responded to demand for specific expertise and skills from, for example, regional water resources bureaus, governmentowned water works enterprises and the federal coordination office of the national WASH programme. Experience to date indicates the need and value of such capacity building support, while the outcomes of improved understanding and operations for institutions to carry out their roles and responsibilities are forthcoming.
