A national consultative forum has brought together participants from across the country for a multi-stakeholder dialogue on diversity and national unity within Ethiopia’s federal system.
The grant is part of a wider five-year project on Promoting Sustainable Rural Energy Technologies (RETs) for Household and Productive Use and is in line with the global Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All) initiative. It also complements national priorities, such as those encompassed within the Ethiopia’s energy policy as well as climate resilient green economy strategy.

UNDP signed a USD 500,000 project to continue its support to the Ethiopia Peace Support Training Centre (EPSTC) with the financial support of the Government of Japan. The newly signed fund will be used to primarily strengthen the institutional and human capacity of the centre for provision of training, transfer of skills and expertise to future peacekeeping practitioners.
