Ethiopia's One WASH National Programme
Ethiopia’s One WASH National Programme is one of six modules in the OpenWASH learning resources. The modules have been written by Ethiopian WASH experts with the support of teaching specialists from The Open University in the UK.
This module describes how the One Wash National Programme (OWNP) sets out the Government of Ethiopia’s plan to radically improve the provision of safe water and sanitation throughout the country, offering significant benefits to millions of Ethiopian people. It covers the Programme’s background, scope, purpose and procedures, and is designed to inform anyone working in the WASH sector or related fields of the significance and future impact of the OWNP.
The module’s 15 separate study sessions are each expected to take about two hours to study, if you are learning on your own. The OpenWASH Trainers’ Handbook provides guidance on using the modules in a variety of face to face teaching contexts.
