FAO Ethiopia Newsletter July 2016

Dear Readers,


Welcome to this issue of the newsletter of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in Ethiopia.


We started 2016 with a fresh spirit of commitment to the people of Ethiopia. FAO Ethiopia has finalized a five year (2016 – 2020) country programming framework, being implemented in line with the Ethiopian Government’s Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP II).


The framework was developed in full participation and consultation with the Ministry of Agriculture and Natural Resources, Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries, and Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change. Key stakeholders provided valuable inputs during the validation workshops organized for the purpose of collecting inputs to shape and enrich the CPF.


The CPF guides FAO’s support to the Government of Ethiopia through three priority areas: crop production, livestock and fisheries production and sustainable natural resources management. The crop priority area focuses on crop intensification New FAO Country Programming Framework for Ethiopia and diversification, nutrition-sensitive agriculture, value chain promotion, agribusiness development, post-harvest management and climate-smart agriculture.
