The USAID Water Office is hosting a webinar on May 17, 2018, at 9 a.m.–10:30 a.m. EDT(New York time): Examining Sustainability of USAID’s Millennium Water Alliance Activity in Ethiopia.

The Millennium Water Alliance-Ethiopia Program (MWA-EP) has worked to improve WASH access and local capacity in the country since 2004, supporting more than 700,000 people as well as a large number of schools and health facilities, across five regions. This event presents key findings from a soon-to-be released USAID ex-post evaluation of MWA-EP's work between 2004 and 2009 in 24 rural woredas (districts) of Ethiopia.

The webinar will focus on the extent to which MWA-EP's outcomes have been sustained and the factors affecting sustainability. Kari Nelson will present evaluation findings on the long-term outcomes related to rural water point construction and rehabilitation, community management of those water points, as well as sanitation and hygiene education activities.
