KENYA, SOMALIA, ETHIOPIA, SOUTH SUDAN, UGANDA REGIONAL WASH GROUP FEBRUARY 2017
The evolving negative impact of IOD has resulted into below-average rainfall and drought situation in Ethiopia. There is significant gaps in drinking water supply to households in the six most affected regions. Water scarcity in lowland areas of Oromia, part of SNNP, Somali and Afar region is critical. Approximately 3.9 million people needs immediate water supply in 195 woredas of the 4 regions.
The evolving El Niño-induced drought situation in Ethiopia shows significant gaps in drinking water supply to households in the six most affected regions. Recently, the Government of Ethiopia through the Ministry of Water Irrigation and Electricity requested WASH partners to consider a scale-up of emergency water supply intervention to address this urgent need. Information from the six drought-affected regions show that many traditional water sources have dried up and households have been reported to walk for up to 10 hours in search of water.
This guideline has been prepared by the WASH Cluster and associated partners. It is designed to provide critical information for those planning, implementing and monitoring water trucking operations. This includes Government, especially at Regional, Zonal and Woreda level, NGOs and UN Agencies, including UNICEF. The guideline may also be useful for donors considering how best to support this intervention.
