Ethiopia’s Multi-Stakeholder Platform

In December 2017, the Planning and Development Commission (PDC and formerly National Planning Commission) formally invited the 2030 WRG to jointly coordinate and undertake analytical work in the form of a hydro-economic analysis (HEA) in collaboration with the Ministry of Water, Irrigation and Energy (MoWIE) to provide insights into the 15-year planning strategy for Ethiopia.

To kick-start the HEA process, the 2030 WRG engaged with various relevant stakeholders and established two advisory groups to guide the HEA process. The hydro-economic analysis aims to provide input for economic development strategies, and the basis for exploring opportunities for the public sector to engage with the private sector in addressing water resources management challenges in Ethiopia.
