Mapping Stakeholder Connections to Improve WASH Collaboration in Ethiopia

As organizations work to improve WASH services, what effect do their relationships with one another play in strengthening the local systems that underpin service delivery?

SWS is supporting locally-led platforms to increase collaboration and knowledge sharing among stakeholders for improved efficiency, effectiveness, and sustainability of local WASH services.
