Ethiopia - Integrated Agro-Industrial Parks - Support Project (IAIPSP) - Appraisal Report

14-Nov-2019

The Project is supporting the development of four (4) Integrated Agro- Industrial Parks (IAIPs), already commenced by the Government of Ethiopia (GoE)1. In particular, the project will provide part of the infrastructure required for agro-industrial activities on the 4 IAIPs and develop requisite skills and agricultural value chain capacity to ensure competitiveness, productivity and inclusivity in their operation. The GoE, alongside many other Development Partners, is developing the 4 IAIPs to attract private sector investments into agro industrial parks in Tigray (North), Amhara (North West), Oromia (Central) and Southern Nations, Nationalities and People (SNNP) (South) Regions, respectively, to enhance a much-desired agricultural transformation of the country, create jobs, boost exports, and reduce urban and rural poverty. The Project Feasibility Studies covering the 4 IAIPs were carried out as a collaborative effort between the GoE, the UNIDO, FAO and UNDP, with support from the Italian development Corporation. The Reports were completed in 2016.
