Working Paper 3. Economic impacts of access to water and sanitation in Ethiopia: Evidence from the Welfare Monitoring Surveys.
The aim of this study is to explore the potential linkages between access to water and sanitation and growth-related indicators in Ethiopia. While the expected benefits from investments in water and sanitation on poverty are immense, there is still only a small (although growing) body of empirical evidence on the issue. This study uses data from Ethiopia's Welfare Monitoring Surveys collected by the Central Statistics Agency in 1999/2000 and 2004/2005 to explore the links between access to water and sanitation and economic growth
