Fostering a Green Growth Path to Boost Sustainable Development

UNDP strongly supports Ethiopia’s efforts to pursue a Climate Resilient Green Economy and has been associated with the initiative from the start. UNDP channels its assistance through a comprehensive package of support for the strategic implementation of the CRGE.

UNDP helps to develop institutional capacity and provides technical and financial support to five key stakeholders for coordinating and operationalizing the national CRGE strategy: the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF), the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development (MoFED), the Ministry of Water and Energy (MoWE), the Ministry of Industry (MoI), and Ministry of Agriculture (MoA).


UNDP’s support is focused on the review and formulation of the necessary policies and strategies, coordination support for carrying out the set priorities in the CRGE strategy, and efforts to mainstream the CRGE implementation into sectoral budgets and development planning.
