Our vision

To see all Ethiopians attain sustainable water and food security/nutrition and live in a clean, healthy and resilient environment that furnishes adequete human dignity.

Our key hypothesis is that:

Financing and delivery of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WaSH) that is more equitable and sustainable will improve human security and contribute significantly to pro-poor growth through linkages to assets, income and health.

The overarching thematic focus of RiPPLE is on ensuring that flows of finance for WaSH services achieve pro-poor outcomes in Ethiopia.

Our overall strategic objectives are:

  • To create research structures and processes that enable effective collaboration across all partner institutions and with key stakeholders;
  • To establish a set of research programme activities that lead to strengthened sector financing approaches and the delivery of Water Supply and Sanitation (WSS) services that maximise opportunities for pro-poor growth;
  • To build long-term approaches to training and capacity building that reinforce research capacity development in Ethiopia and the Nile region.
