Achieving Water Security View Jacket

  • Synopsis
    Achieving water security remains an elusive goal yet the benefits of investing in water, sanitation and hygiene to achieve basic water security and alleviate poverty are clear. Households benefit through a range of livelihood impacts; economies benefit from greater economic activity and over the longer-term, households and economies benefit through greater resilience to climate change and shocks. So why are governments and their development partners struggling to meet water and sanitation targets? What factors make it difficult to sustain services at scale? And how can policies and plans for delivering and sustaining services for poor people be strengthened in the face of multiple pressures, including climate change? This book addresses these questions and draws conclusions for policy and practice, linking findings with current international debates on service delivery in rural areas. This book should be read by government agencies, donor organisations and NGOs, as well as academics and researchers in the water, sanitation and hygiene sector. Published in association with ODI.

  • Endorsements
    ‘Water security matters, and it matters most to the most vulnerable individuals, households, communities and nations. Ethiopia is home to many millions of people who are anything but water-secure. This publication shines a light on such people, and it provides numerous inter-disciplinary insights into the causes of water insecurity and into some of the measures which are needed to relieve that insecurity. There are too few research programmes of this type which focus on situations of real need in the world, and which grapple with the difficult issues associated with the relief of poverty and vulnerability. I warmly welcome this contribution to the literature, and hope that this work will inform the practices and policies of government and development partners in Ethiopia.’ Richard C. Carter, Visiting Professor, Cranfield University, UK

    ‘Consolidating these findings from the RiPPLE programme into a single volume to address water security in Ethiopia has generated an essential primer and benchmark in realizing domestic water supply and sanitation in Africa’s second most populous country. Being informed by five years of research and learning, this is a valuable insight into a critical dimension of Ethiopia’s future security.’Melvin Woodhouse, Associate Director, LTS International, UK
