Ethiopia’s Multi-Sector Investment Plan for Climate Resilience pursues a multi-sectoral approach that identifies priority investments in the agriculture, forestry, water, livestock and energy sectors that enhance climate resilience. The multi-sectoral approach is being used to enhance the likelihood of achieving the transformational effects required from Ethiopia’s green growth strategies.
This assignment reviews existing investments and gaps in the resilience building portfolio and will develop the investment plan.
- LTS is leading the assignment, working with E-Co and Echnoserve.
- The assignment is contracted by The World Bank on behalf of the Government of Ethiopia.
- The work supports Ethiopia’s efforts towards a climate resilient green economy.
Ethiopia has set ambitious objectives for strengthening climate resilience and protecting her environment. This has been articulated in the national green growth strategies, as well as specifically in sectoral resilience plans for agriculture, forest, water and energy. Significant advances have been made, and now further action is planned. A multi-sectoral investment plan, based on thorough review of existing projects and assessment of gaps remaining to be filled, is required.
LTS has been contracted to carry out:
- Portfolio review and gap analysis – Assessing policy and programming gaps and areas of significant investment need.
- Multi-stakeholder Investment plan development – including project fiches, and with a focus on: upscaling successful activities and reducing duplication and overlap.
Being implemented in a tight timeframe, the work involves significant stakeholder consultation and deep understanding of the Ethiopian resilience context across these sectors, alongside competencies in preparing adequately detailed investments plans.
