Ethiopia ranks among the lowest countries in the world in levels of safe water and sanitation coverage. 66% of Ethiopia's 83 million citizens do not have access to an improved water supply and 79% lack access to basic sanitation. The majority of Ethiopia's citizens live in rural areas where rates of coverage are even worse. Among rural Ethiopians, only 34% have access to an improved water supply
