The Government of Ethiopia’s (GoE) One WASH National Programme, launched in September 2013 is a comprehensive 7 years programme (2013-2020). It operationalizes agreements between 4 sector ministries; Water, Health, Education and Finance, with a total budget of USD $2.4bill. The Program is the GoE’s main instrument for achieving the goals set out in the Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP), with targets for access to safe water supply at 98%, 100% for rural and urban areas, respectively. The targets for sanitation and hygiene set out in the Universal Access Plan (UAP) are that all Ethiopians will have access to basic sanitation, while 77% of the population practice hand washing at critical times, and 80% of communities in the country declared open defecation free (ODF). The SWAp in Ethiopia aspires to be the most comprehensive WASH SWAp ever, with a unified planning, budgeting and monitoring system.
