Description/achievement of initiative

For Ethiopia, green growth is a necessity as well as an opportunity to be seized. It is an opportunity to realize Ethiopia's huge potential in renewable energy and a necessity so as to arrest agro-ecological degradation that threatens to trap millions of citizens in poverty.
Ethiopia has embarked upon the development of a Climate-Resilient Green Economy strategy addressing climate change adaptation and mitigation objectives. The preparation of the strategy is now completed and will be integrated into Ethiopia's five-year Growth and Transformation Plan. The project has been supported by the Global Green Growth Institute.
