Ethiopia embarks on significant water policy reforms, guided by options from WLE and IWMI
- Impact Area
Ethiopia’s development trajectory is placing water resources under extraordinary pressure. To have any chance of continuing on this trajectory – not to mention achieving Sustainable Development Goal 6, water and sanitation for all – the country needs new approaches to managing water use and trade-offs. In 2020, the Government took the initiative with a water policy review that will form the foundation for far-reaching reform, and they wrote to the CGIAR Research Program on Water, Land and Ecosystems (WLE) and International Water Management Institute (IWMI) for help.
