Ethiopia has launched various initiatives and programs aimed at promoting sanitation and hygiene in the country. The “One WASH National Program” aims to provide access to safe water supply and sanitation facilities in 307 Woredas in Ethiopia by 2030. The program focuses on increasing access to sanitation facilities, promoting proper hygiene practices, and improving the management of sanitation infrastructure. 

The World Bank funded “Second Urban Water Supply and Sanitation Project” for 22 towns in Ethiopia, is supporting Faecal Sludge Management in Ethiopia.
