This intervention relates to Supplementary Financing of the Basic Services Transformation Programme (BSTP) in Ethiopia. This Supplementary Financing seeks to address quality and geographic inequalities in access to basic services in health, education, and water and sanitation and is thus a continuation of BSTP. It should allow the government to expand basic services mainly in the pastoral and underserved regions with emphasis on improving quality and equity for inclusive transformation. In addition, the programme should also strengthen accountability and citizens’ engagement in basic service delivery. The program has two components, namely: (i) Enhancing Quality and Equity in Basic Services; and (ii) Strengthening Accountability and Transparency and Citizens’ Engagement. Its outcomes are consistent with those for the original BSTP and comprise: (i) expanded and enhanced quality of basic services at the Woreda level; (ii) strengthened accountability and transparency in service delivery; and (iii) enhanced citizen’s engagement in service delivery.
The overall goal of BSTP is to contribute to poverty reduction and improved standards of living of Ethiopians. The purpose of the programme is to expand and deepen the provision of basic services with a focus on enhancing quality and equity mainly in health, education and water and sanitation; and enhance citizen engagement in basic service delivery.
The BSTP supplementary financing should continue to focus on expanding access to and improving quality in basic service delivery for the majority of the population. In line with the BSTP, the supplementary financing targets about 80% of the population who live in rural areas and women who constitute about 50% of the population. The underserved regions, like the pastoralist areas, and the rural poor and women should particularly benefit from the supplementary financing and this should be specifically tracked through the region-disaggregated indicators.
