In this paper, Bethlehem Mengistu provides critical insights from WaterAid Ethiopia’s experience of changing its approach from working in partnership with local NGOs towards working directly with governments to enable service delivery and strengthen the systems for a sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector.
