This paper does not solely look at how to bring increased financing into the sector. It also takes a pragmatic and practical look at how current financing can be made more effective. It looks at ways in which the sector is failing to be effective in the use of financing, as well as positive ways in which the sector is maximising its effectiveness. We show that communities are key players in changing their own situation, and we make recommendations to all sector stakeholders. There is no doubt that more funding is needed if water, sanitation and hygiene promotion is to increase in Ethiopia, and if the wider developmental benefits of water, sanitation, and hygiene promotion (referred to in this report as WaSH) are to be experienced. But we must also strive to add the most value to interventions and contributions that are already being made. This report does not pretend to be a complete financial portrait of the Ethiopian WaSH sector. Rather, it hopes to be a thorough financial snapshot of Ethiopian WaSH that sparks debate and considers some of the constraints on meeting, and providing pathways to, the MDGs.
