Axum is located in the state of Oromia, Ethiopia, approximately 47 km south east of Addis Ababa. Its topography is undulating and characterized by flat land on the north and east parts of the city, locked by several lakes, while the south is dominated by hills (BCP, 2015). The geographical area of the city is about 15,273 ha, and it lies at an altitude in the range of 1900 m. to 1995 m. The number of Open Defecation is very low (1%). Nevertheless, none of the city's excreta is delivered to a treatment plant. Therefore, only 14% of the city's excreta is safely managed, whilst 86% is unsafely managed.
