Healthy village Programme (HVP)

Consortium of Max Foundation and Plan International Ethiopia have developed an innovative five-year (2020 – 2025) integrated Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), food and nutrition security programme called the ‘Healthy Village Programme’ (HVP) to reduce stunting and water- and faecal-borne diseases in a sustainable manner, jointly with the Government of Ethiopia. The Programme aims to reach approximately 400,000 people, who are the most vulnerable or do not yet have sufficient access to clean water and sanitation, are food insecure and/or have poor nutritional status.

The Healthy Village Programme (HVP) is being implemented in three Seqota Declaration woredas in Amhara region, Shebel Berenta, Goncha Siso Enessie and Enebssie Sar Midir woredas in East Gojjam Zone. As one of the cross-cutting issues which is climate change resilience of the HVP, it envisages to assess and analyse the Climate change vulnerability and resilience (CVR) assessment in the above-mentioned areas.


  • The CRV assessment will analyse climate risks that could affect the programme from current climate conditions and trends for the agriculture, health, gender, and water sectors, as well as more long-term projections.
  • It analyses and assesses the IWRM and hydrogeological review along with the CVR of those given localities.
  • The study is also to propose the resilience and adaptation mechanisms as to be part of activity-output- outcome level implementation in the aforementioned sectors.
  • It will also provide the basis for guiding subsequent actions, which will ensure that the program is carried out taking into account any climate-related risks and adaptation needs and options. These suggested actions should be clearly detailed in the report in the form of an action plan, which also highlights the trade-offs, risks, expected costs and expected impact where relevant.
