This Country Planning Framework (CPF) sets out the outcomes and deliverables that the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) will achieve over five years in the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (FDRE). It allows for continual evolution, responsiveness and improvement in order to meet the needs and development priorities of the FDRE. It will guide GGGI in the development of its annual work plans and budgets that will identify yearly tasks, activities and priorities in the FDRE.

GGGI has been working with the FDRE in green growth planning and implementation since 2010, with financial support from three major donors—the Government of Norway, the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DfID), and Germany’s Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB). GGGI has made some notable successes that include contributing to the development of the Climate Resilient Green Economy (CRGE) Vision, the Green Economy Strategy, and two Climate Resilience Strategies for agriculture and forests, and for water, irrigation and energy. GGGI also supported the establishment of the CRGE Facility and the Environment and Climate Research Center (ECRC).

As the FDRE develops the second phase of the Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP II), GGGI develops its CPF to support the government in its objective of becoming a CRGE.

The purpose of the CPF is to detail how GGGI will support the FDRE in planning and implementing the CRGE vision. It outlines country level outcomes and indicative outputs that will be delivered over a five-year period. The CPF’s outcomes are derived from organizational priorities, reflecting GGGI’s comparative advantage, and from consultations with government institutions and development partners, including representatives from key sectors in the FDRE. This ensures that national goals are aligned with key elements of green growth, which include economic growth, poverty reduction, social inclusion and environmental sustainability.

This CPF targets the delivery of tangible results on the ground. It documents the commitment of GGGI to building a CRGE in the FDRE in close collaboration with the Government of Ethiopia.
