Ethiopia: Climate-resilient green economy strategy

Ethiopia aims to achieve middle-income status by 2025 while developing a green economy. Following the conventional development path would, among other adverse effects, result in a sharp increase in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and unsustainable use of natural resources. To avoid such negative effects, the government has developed a strategy to build a green economy. It is now starting to transform the strategy into action and welcomes collaboration with domestic and international partners. 

The Climate-Resilient Green Economy (CRGE) initiative follows a sectoral approach and has so far identified and prioritised more than 60 initiatives, which could help the country achieve its development goals while limiting GHG emissions. The green economy plan is based on four pillars:

  1. Improving crop and livestock production practices for higher food security and farmer income while reducing emissions
  2. Protecting and re-establishing forests for their economic and ecosystem services, including as carbon stocks
  3. Expanding electricity generation from renewable sources of energy for domestic and regional markets
  4. Leapfrogging to modern and energy-efficient technologies in transport, industrial sectors, and buildings.
