Our Work in Ethiopia

Our Role

The 2030 WRG has facilitated several national-level dialogues to further develop the hydro-economic study through its advisory groups. The objective of this study is to serve as a high-level guide on existing and future water resources management (WRM) challenges, and opportunities in addressing water security through a multi-stakeholder approach.

The 2030 WRG aims to facilitate joint action by engaging public, private, and civil society stakeholders in improving WRM and demonstrating that effective WRM can be achieved through cross-ministerial collaboration and collective action.


Since April 2018, three stakeholder workshops have been held with both the Public Sector Advisory Group and Private Sector and Civil Society Organizations Advisory Group separately, in order to gather input on the development of a Multi-Stakeholder Platform in Ethiopia and the development of a hydro-economic analysis.

In addition, the 2030 WRG actively engaged with the Ministry of Water, Irrigation and Energy (MoWIE) and other stakeholders to develop a common national platform to address selected WRM issues in Ethiopia. In June 2018, the 2030 WRG worked closely with the MoWIE to conduct national meetings to refine the issues and develop implementable programs.
