Capacity Strengthening for Industrial Development

What is the project about

This project seeks to provide catalytic support towards strengthening the national capacity for enterprise development in the area of the industrial sector. The project’s key interventions include making industrial sector wide advice available; formulating policy,  strategies and solutions  for enhanced growth in the manufacturing sector; building the institutional capacity of the Ministry of Industry and selected institutions; and promotion of investment in the industrial sector.   

 

What have we accomplished so far

The project is  empowering local communities to take charge of their crop-cycle planning with the introduction of easy-to-use early warning systems that can predict the rainy season.

Now in its third year, the UNDP /GEF project in Ethiopia initially planned on reaching 41,000 inhabitants of the selected pilot areas in northern Ethiopia. However, the number of people benefiting has risen to 100,000 with neighboring communities– eager to learn from these new practices that will allow farmers to plan ahead in the face of an increasingly unpredictable climate.
