The assignment was part of the World Bank’s Ethiopian Water Supply, Sanitation, and Hygiene Programme (Credit3901-ET/Grant H850-ET) – a 75 Million USD credit and 25 Million USD grant to improve water supply of about 3 million people in rural settlements and towns. The program’s emphasis on local government decision-making reflects an overall government shift of responsibilities and resources to the lowest possible level. Capacity building is essential in this decentralized approach.
