COWASH-hanke on vuosina 2011-2016 toimiva Suomen ja Etiopian hallitusten välinen kehistysyhteistyöhanke, joka tukee vesi- ja sanitaatioprojektien toteuttamista soveltaen yhteisövetoista lähetymistapaa (CMP) 76 kunnassa. Tämä innovatiivinen toimintamalli on kehitetty Suomen rahoittamissa vesihankkeissa 2000-luvulla. Mallin mukaan paikalliset yhteisöt hakevat rahoitustukea oman vesipisteen tai käymälän rakentamiseen ja vastaavat itse kaivojen rakennuttamisesta, hankinnoista ja hallinnoinnista. Tältä sivulta löydät tietoa suomeksi COWASH-hankkeesta ja CMP-lähestymistavasta.

The approach includes important innovations in financing, putting communities at the centre of development and enabling government to support faster delivery of new services to more people. The approach is currently supported through Community-Led Accelerated WASH (COWASH) project that runs in 2011-2016. COWASH is to contribute to the achievement of universal access to WASH in rural WASH and it is currently supporting the implementation of CMP in 76 districts in rural Ethiopia.
