Weather extremes in Ethiopia are severely impacting human health, livelihood and development. This case study describes activities undertaken in Ethiopia to develop climate resilient water sanitation and hygiene (WASH) initiatives from 2013-2018 as part of the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID)-funded project on “Building adaptation to climate change in health in least developed countries (LDCs) through resilient WASH”. The aim of this project was to assist countries to respond to changes in health risks as a consequence of climate variability and change, through improved and more resilient health and WASH adaptation practices.
