The operations of nearly all Federal and Regional government institutions in Ethiopia have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Knowledge and skill gaps to plan for and the ability to maintain continuity of critical government functions were identified as an area where there was no defined support to address the impact of the pandemic and was recognised by both the Federal Civil Service Commission (FCSC) and the UNDP Ethiopia Office. Following this realization, the UNDP Ethiopia Office came up with an action proposal “Accelerating the national response to the impact of COVID-19: Enabling continuity of critical government functions”. The objective of which is to put in place a minimum level of business continuity planning and preparedness across targeted GoE public sector bodies.
