Serier – Sida EvaluationDescription:
The Dodota Water Supply Project has against strong odds been very successful, and has been used as a model for a number of water projects in Ethiopia. In 1986, the completed plant was handed over to a women's political organization that ceased to exist in 1991. Since 1991 the "public water company" has had no owner and since 1986 all activities have been financed by the population in the connected towns and villages.
The purpose of this study is to investigate why the water still is flowing at the taps and to adapt the positive aspects of this project when planning and implementing new SIDA-supported projects.
