project will equip the Ethiopian clothing industry with the skills to assess
and tackle the water-related challenges they face, and contribute to solutions,
via application of the 'AWS Standard'. It will work along the whole value chain
(from cotton growers to textile producers and garment manufacturers) to
generate replicable actions and evidence on the benefits of water stewardship.
This will be used to mobilise support for better policies, regulation and
investments across the Ethiopian clothing sector.
the project will coordinate with relevant national and global stakeholders to
maximise impact. In particular, working with Multi-National Corporations so
that they provide leadership and support to suppliers in their supply chains to
tackle water-related challenges faced by SMEs.
