Ethiopia - Country Programme Document (2020-2025)

July 1, 2022

Aligned fully with the HGER and guided by the UNDP Strategic Plan, 2018-2021, the emerging UNDP strategic offer for Africa and the United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF), the next programme will assist Ethiopia to overcome its structural challenges as it strives to become a democratic, peaceful and prosperous middle-income country. UNDP will support a successful transition to democratic governance, address drivers of conflict to consolidate and build peace, foster enabling conditions for expanded job creation by the private sector (especially SMEs) and accelerate the transition to a green economy resilient to climate change. Gender equality and women’s empowerment will be embedded across all areas of work. These priorities capitalize on strengths demonstrated under the past programme while adapting to new realities and opportunities, retaining an ability to respond flexibly to COVID-19 and other unforeseen developments.

Across all of its priorities, UNDP will apply principles drawn from the human-rights based approach that are strongly embedded in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
