Summary of VFM findings from Ethiopia
This briefing note summarises findings of a Value for Money (VFM) study of the Water Supply and Sanitation Programme (WSSP) in Ethiopia, to which DFID contributed funds between 2008 and 2013. Findings are followed by an overview of the team’s recommendations to improve VFM and programme management going forward. The WSSP is a government-led programme supported by the World Bank and DFID, which began in 2004. Five key VFM dimensions were analysed, namely economy, efficiency/cost-efficiency and effectiveness/cost-effectiveness.
