Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia Country strategic opportunities programme

The purpose of this country strategic opportunities programme (COSOP) is to provide a longer-term vision for IFAD’s engagement in the country, and to guide the evolution of the country programme to its envisaged new structure.

Ethiopia is characterized by a fast-evolving and dynamic development context, which is supported by a wide community of development partners, offering opportunities to refine IFAD’s engagement niche to maximize its development effectiveness and impact.

The strategy is based on:

  • experience and lessons from previous investments;
  • guidance provided by the second Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP II);
  • analysis of relevant developments and trends; and (iv) Government of Ethiopia expectations.
