COWASH-hanke on vuosina 2011-2020 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. Tältä sivulta löydät tietoa suomeksi COWASH-hankkeesta ja CMP-lähestymistavasta.

Community Managed Projects

This website provides information on the Community Managed Project (CMP) approach to rural water supply and institutional sanitation 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 2011-2020. 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.
