The One WASH National Programme is new for Ethiopia. When it was introduced, no one had any previous experience of implementing a programme of this kind. It required new arrangements and adjustments to ways of working, i.e. new approaches and/or modalities, at federal, regional and woreda levels so that appropriate plans could be developed for putting the OWNP into practice.
In this study session you will learn about these new approaches and the conditions that need to exist within these various levels before OWNP implementation can take place. The study session describes some of the ways the implementation of the OWNP has been approached for water supply, sanitation and hygiene provision in both rural and urban settings, and in particular in schools and health facilities.
