Fact Sheet: Ethiopia Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene

In 2015, Ethiopia achieved its Millennium Development Goal target of 57 percent access to safe drinking water, an increase from just 13 percent in 1990. Yet access to improved sanitation, while also vastly improved since 1990, remains alarmingly low at only 28 percent nationwide.

Project

Strengthening Watershed and Irrigation Management

The Strengthening Watershed and Irrigation Management (SWIM) project supports sustainable, agriculture-led economic growth by increasing the sustainable and productive use of water and strengthening water resource management. Specifically, SWIM will:

  • Increase the sustainable and productive use of water for agriculture in targeted areas;
  • Strengthen the water regulatory environment; and
  • Strengthen local entities to manage water resources.

Water and Food Security

Water and food security focuses on the management of water for agricultural sustainably and productivity. This includes increasing water-use efficiency and productivity in both rainfed and irrigated areas that will improve water management for agriculture.
