Source to tap and back (S2TAB) project in Ethiopia
Water Operator Partnership for Sustainable Access to Water and Sanitation in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
The project is focused on the water utility of Ethiopia's capital city, Addis Ababa Water and Sewerage Authority (AAWSA). They operate mainly within the administrative boundaries of Addis, however many of its water sources are located outside of the city, creating necessity and opportunity for cooperation in the region.
The WaterWorX programme in Addis Ababa is subtitled: "Non-revenue Water reduction in Addis Ababa and Water Utility Benchmarking in Ethiopia". It seeks to build on the work which has been done under the S2TAB project using the experience and relations that have formed during its implementation.
