Brief Description

The Government of Ethiopia has a strong commitment and recognition of the importance of the forest sector, considering the sector as one of the four pillars in the Climate Resilient Green Growth (CRGE) strategy and having established the Ministry of Environment and Forest (MEF). The newly established MEF urgently requires institutional strengthening support at all levels, so that the sector can effectively and efficiently discharge its responsibilities. In order to realize the forestry components of CRGE strategy, implement REDD+ strategy, realize the targets set in the GTP, adequately plan GTP2, the newly established MEF and its replica in regional states and city administrations are facing significant capacity constrains at systemic, institutional and individual levels. Therefore, strengthening the institutional capacity of the sector to implement sustainable forest management is critically important. The forest sector needs an innovative and holistic approach to realize its strategic role in supporting the sustainable development of the country. The present program is targeted to enhance the capacity of the forest sector to fulfill its mandate at all levels; increase forest coverage that boosts carbon sequestration and other environmental services as well as the promotion of sustainable supply of wood and wood products. Promotion of broad-based stakeholder engagement in forest conservation and development including the private sector and enhancement of the forest development policies, strategies and interventions led by innovation are also focus areas of the program.
