Designing for Sustainability Bringing Citywide Inclusive Sanitation to Debre Birhan, Ethiopia

Event Date: 
Mar 28, 2019
9:00 am to 10:00 am EDT
Online Event
The USAID Sustainable WASH Systems Learning Partnership


The USAID Sustainable WASH Systems Learning Partnership (SWS) is holding a webinar on March 28 to discuss efforts to improve sanitation infrastructure and service delivery in the rapidly growing town of Debre Birhan in Ethiopia.

SWS is working with local actors in Debre Birhan to strengthen the local system for sanitation service delivery, along with the World Bank, which is providing substantial new sanitation infrastructure investment as part of its Ethiopia Second Urban Water Supply and Sanitation Project. The timing of the two projects provides an opportunity to work toward achieving citywide inclusive sanitation, a comprehensive approach that focuses on the entire sanitation service chain, from containment to end-use or disposal.

The presenters will discuss how the two projects are collaborating to design for sustainability by addressing critical elements such as technology, finance, regulation, environment, social aspects, and institutional arrangements for improved delivery of sanitation services in Debre Birhan.
