The UNDP-managed multipartner peace support/stabilisation programme was developed following the signing of an agreement for a permanent Cessation of Hostilities (CoHA) between the Government of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (GoE) and the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF) in Pretoria, South Africa, on 2 November 2022. 

The programme is nestled within Ethiopia’s wider Resilient Recovery and Reconstruction Framework (3RF) and focuses on action over the next 24 months, that include restoring local governance and the rule of law, reinforcing social cohesion, reviving local economic activity and service delivery, and finding development solutions for those who have been displaced.  

This intervention is a time-bound, localised, integrated, civilian stabilisation programme delivered at scale and with speed in order to build trust between communities and legitimate authorities, and lay the foundations for recovery, peacebuilding, and development programmes.

The project initially targets 13 woredas identified in consultation with local authorities in Afar, Amhara and Tigray regions
