UPGro workshop findings
WaterAid Ethiopia held a research workshop to disseminate findings of the UPGro Phase II Research. The workshop discussed the challenges of handpump waterpoints in light of functionality and sustainability.
Yaekob Metena, WaterAid Ethiopia Country Director, said on the occasion: "The findings will enable actors to further understand the context and underlying factors influencing the functionality of underground water points".
The workshop brought together researchers and academicians as well as partners from the government and civil society organisations. The hope is that this study helps unlock some of the challenges in the sector while it inspires researchers for similar studies.
