COWASH-hanke on vuosina 2011-2019 toimiva Suomen ja Etiopian hallitusten välinen kehistysyhteistyöhanke, joka tukee vesi- ja sanitaatioprojektien toteuttamista soveltaen yhteisövetoista lähetymistapaa (CMP) viidessa osavaltiossa ja 76 kunnassa. Tämä innovatiivinen toimintamalli on kehitetty Suomen rahoittamissa vesihankkeissa 2000-luvulla. Mallin mukaan paikalliset yhteisöt tai koulut ja terveysasemat hakevat rahoitustukea oman vesipisteen tai käymälän rakentamiseen ja vastaavat itse oman vesihuoltonsa rakennuttamisesta, hankinnoista ja hallinnoinnista.

This website provides information on the Community Managed Project (CMP) approach to rural water supply in Ethiopia. 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.

The selfless combatant, a mother of eight, has made all the difference in the lives of her communities. “I am happy that we have made it that far. I really feel honored in serving my community. I am still committed to do more for them,” Zinash says proudly.
In 2003, Rural Water Supply and Environmental Program (RWSEP), introduced Community Managed Project (CMP) approach, then known as Community Development Fund (CDF). RWSEP, the first safe water supply, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) bilateral program between Finland and Ethiopia, started implementing CMP in two districts of Amhara region.
