The Water supply and sanitation subsector is among the focus areas that the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (FDRE) has considered among the pro poor sectors. With this understanding the World Bank is extending its support through different interventions. The World Bank Group is supporting the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia to achieve its national targets set under GTP II through availing resources to different sectors and sub sectors.
One of the major interventions of the World Bank is the support extended to improve the services delivery in Addis Ababa and 22 secondary towns under the Second Urban Water Supply and Sanitation Project (SUWSSP). Implementation of the project is an opportunity to improve sanitation services delivery and water supply in Addis Ababa and in the secondary and regional towns. This project is a logical continuation of the Ethiopian Urban Water Supply and Sanitation project which was closed in December 2017. Unlike the prior projects the SUWSSP has a wider perspective of reaching different segment of the community by adopting City Wide Inclusive Sanitation (CWIS) approach. The model provides opportunity to start with understanding the context, planning for cost effective solution, and consultation with end users. Except Addis Ababa, all project beneficiary towns had limited experience of delivering sanitation focused project and their current staffing for sanitation is also limited.
The SUWSSP has three major components (i) Addis Ababa sanitation and operational efficiency improvement, (ii) Secondary cities and towns sanitation, water supply, and operational efficiency improvement, and (iii) Program management (Federal and regional level). The first two components further divided into three sub-components focusing on sanitation services improvement, water utilities performance improvement and utility modernization and institutional capacity strengthening.
