Partnership to advance resiliency in the Ethiopian lowlands
This iterative approach has ensured that workshops were constantly improved using lessons learned from the previously conducted workshops.
Lowland WASH was well situated to arrange the cost-effective logistical support requirements that was critical to the team's remote field activities.
Early on, Lowland WASH and SWS identified a common concern that a lack of finance lies behind the problems of service delivery and sustainability in the lowlands.
