    Given the scarcity of land and water resources, global strategies to increase food production should focus efforts on increasing production per unit resources, i.e. the combined increase of production per unit land surface (yield expressed in kg/ha1) and the increase of production per unit water used (water productivity expressed in kg/m³). Closing land and water productivity gaps is a complex task which requires: (i) monitoring of current levels of productivity in various crop production systems; (ii) assessment of observed productivity relative to potential; (iii) identification and analysis of the underlying causes of the productivity gaps; and (iv) evaluation of options and identification of viable solutions to close the productivity gaps in the local context. To support these processes, this project is applying analysis of high resolution satellite images in conjunction with specific algorithms to determine spatial and temporal variability of agricultural water and land productivity. Through the project activities, a validated remote sensing based methodological framework is being created to assess and monitor land and, more specifically, water productivity. The provision of near real time information through an open access data portal (WaPOR https://wapor.apps.fao.org) will enable a range of service-providers to assist farmers attain more reliable yields and to improve their livelihoods; irrigation operators will have access to new information to assess the performance of systems and to identify where to focus investments to modernize the irrigation schemes; and government agencies will be able to use the information to monitor and promote the efficient use of natural resources. In Ethiopia, the capacity development activities will build on ongoing and past work undertaken by IWMI. Stakeholder analysis, needs assessment, and capacity building will take place with relevant national partners, and actual piloting of solutions and capacity building will take place in the Koga reservoir in combined rain-fed and irrigated systems. The objective is to identify and implement locally appropriate solutions to build capacity to improve water productivity at the scheme level, which can be tested in Ethiopia and out-scaled to the other project locations.

    Enhancing the Development of the Agro-Industry Sector in Ethiopia - GCP/ETH/101/EC 2020

    Despite the high rates of economic growth recorded over the past 15 years,the Ethiopian economy remains fundamentally agricultural. Structuraltransformation, understood as the transfer of financial and human resourcesfrom the agricultural sector to the industrial sector, modern services andagricultural modernization, is still incipient. To further stimulate thedevelopment of the agro-industry sector, in 2015, the Government of Ethiopiainitiated a policy on the establishment of integrated Agro-CommodityProcurement Zones (ACPZs) and Integrated Agro-Industrial Park (IAIP)Development. Seventeen ACPZs were identified across the country, based ontheir potential for agribusiness development, of which four were selected,located in Oromia, Amhara, Tigray and Southern Nations, Nationalities andPeoples Region (SNNPR). These were related to the four pilot parks to bedeveloped in the first phase (2020-2025). Against this background, theGovernment of Ethiopia requested that FAO provide technical support toprepare Comprehensive Development Frameworks and Investment Plans forthe four pilot ACPZs.

    Independent Evaluation of the Programmes and Cooperation of the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations in Ethiopia
    Evaluation Report. January 2011

    The Ethiopia Country Evaluation has been an independent and forward looking process, providing FAO’s stakeholders with a systematic and objective assessment of the relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, impacts and sustainability of the programmes and activities undertaken by FAO in Ethiopia. The evaluation considered all of FAO’s work in Ethiopia during the period 2005- 2010, irrespective of the source of funding (regular programme or extra budgetary resources) or the location of project managem ent (HQ, Regional Office or the FAOR). The evaluation also included an assessment of the activities of the FAO representation which are not necessarily carried out through projects. The team developed a wide ranging evaluation framework; in broad terms, FAO’s performance was evaluated against the FAO corporate objectives, the draft National Medium Term Priority Framework (NMTPF), the draft FAO Disaster Risk Management Plan of Action (PoA) and by review of projects implemented in the country.
