Water for African Cities - Ethiopia
Ethiopia has abundant water resources with surface potential estimated at 122 billion cubic meters per annum, equivalent to a per capita fresh water resource of about 1920 m3/yr, one of the highest in sub-Saharan Africa from 9 river basins. Irrespective of the potential of water supply sources, Ethiopia is among the countries with least access to potable water supply for the population. In the year 2003 only about 34% of the total population (25% of rural and 85% of urban population) had access to potable water supplies. Access to sanitation facilities is even worse than water supply both in urban and rural communities of the country.
