Determinants of Household Participation in Water Source Management in Ethiopia

Fenet Belay Daba Alemayehu Oljirra


Access to safe drinking water supplies and sanitation services in Ethiopia are among the lowest in Sub-Saharan Africa. While governmental and non- governmental organizations have been implementing water supply and sanitation projects in recent years, many fail shortly after construction due improper management. In this review I examine socio-economic, institutional and exogenous factors which affect households’ participation in the management of water sources. The results show that households’ demand for sustainable water services are positively affected by users’ participation during the project design and implementation, advocacy provided by the project and greater household income. Thus, for drinking water systems to be sustainable these factors should be included in planning water supply projects.
