Summary of Study Session 14

In Study Session 14, you have learned that:

  1. Planning of projects and programmes should ask six basic questions: ‘What?’, ‘When?’, ‘Where?’, ‘Who?’, ‘How?’ and ‘How much?’
  2. OWNP planning was governed by the goal of achieving WASH targets that had been set out in the Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP) and Universal Access Plan (UAP).
  3. Specific criteria were established for assessing when the water supply and sanitation targets were considered to be achieved.
  4. The planning process involved using data on the baseline conditions in all regions of Ethiopia and a complex range of assessments of population size and distribution, types of water supply scheme and their costs and benefits, etc.
  5. Planning outputs are detailed breakdowns of the number and costs of new and rehabilitated schemes required to achieve the targets.
  6. Planning of the OWNP is a continuous process that follows a specified schedule through the year and involves dialogue between all levels of the WASH organisational structure.
  7. The process includes Strategic Plans, Annual WASH Plans, Core Plans and Annual Work Plans.
  8. The total budget for the OWNP is US$2.41 billion and will have millions of beneficiaries in Ethiopia.
