During the El Nino drought in Ethiopia in 2015-16 significant efforts were made to monitor the performance of rural water points. Using data from 5196 water points we demonstrate that with adequate monitoring and maintenance, groundwater sources deliver reliable water supply during drought. Our results have implications for resilient water supply across rural sub Saharan Africa.
