This report summarizes the evidence-based and costed country roadmaps for effective public interventions to transform agriculture and food systems in Ethiopia, Malawi, and Nigeria in a way that ends hunger, makes diets healthier and more affordable, improves the productivity and incomes of small-scale producers and their households, and mitigate

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused huge economic disruptions that affect food and nutrition security in many low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).

Agricultural commercialization is often pursued as an important driver of agricultural transformation in low-income countries. However, the implications it can have on gendered outcomes are less understood.

The paper highlights practices, challenges, and lessons learned from Ethiopia’s experience to mainstream climate change considerations into development strategies. It narrates Ethiopia’s experience and evolution with national development planning along the policy cycle [planning, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation (M&E)].

This report provides a deep dive analysis of the landscape of climate finance in Ethiopia in 2019/2020. The analysis is based on the methodology and database developed by CPI for the Landscape of Climate Finance in Africa.

This study reviews and documents strategic interventions by the government of Ethiopia in terms of adopting policies, strategies and programmes; building the necessary institutional infrastructure; and mainstreaming disaster risk management into various sectors and national development and budgeting process – all of which contributed to building

Land and watershed degradation in Ethiopia threaten agricultural productivity, water supplies, and livelihoods. Key challenges include inadequate financing and unsustainable conservation interventions.

Pollution and environmental degradation often worsen as countries develop and industrialize. The Environmental Kuznets Curve (EKC) hypothesis suggests that, initially, economic growth increases pollution up to a certain income threshold, and then it begins to decrease pollution. Pollution reduction is not inevitable, however.

In Ethiopia, nearly 10 million people, including 4.4 million children, are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance in drought-impacted areas. Four consecutive failed rainy seasons have brought on severe drought in Ethiopia’s lowland regions of Afar, Oromia, the Southern Nations Nationalities, Peoples’ (SNNPR) and Somali regions.

Global poverty monitored by the World Bank for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is reported only at the national level, lacking a breakdown between urban and rural areas. A key challenge to producing globally comparable estimates of urban poverty is the need for consistent definitions of urban areas and poverty.
