    Identifying the pathways through which agricultural investments can be sustainable and inclusive requires assessments of the poverty, livelihoods and food security situation of the populations likely to be affected by such investments. This technical study provides the first in-depth look at rural areas in Ethiopia using the 2018/19 Ethiopian Socio-economic Survey, analyzing the national trends in poverty among rural households along the dimensions of economic inclusion and social sustainability. The study offers an initial characterization of poor and food-insecure people in the country and gives indications of key characteristics that may identify the poorest and most vulnerable groups, analyzed through the lens of the key features of the investments in Ethiopia’s newly developed Agro-Commodity Procurement Zones (ACPZs). The profile complements existing poverty analyses undertaken for Ethiopia, providing an analysis of poverty that is relevant to the investments in ACPZs and agriculture more broadly. Specific emphasis is placed on agricultural production regimes, especially those related to the priority commodities of the ACPZs and their relevance in terms of food and nutrition security. The constraints faced by specific population groups of interest, including rural women and youth, are also identified to inform questions concerning the inclusiveness of investments in ACPZs. Adequate attention to the issues raised in this technical study, complemented with territorial-level investigations, will serve as a basis for developing a knowledge base and targeting tools and interventions that can be operationalized by stakeholders in these investment areas.

    With the current Second Growth and Transformation Plan (2015-2020), the Government of Ethiopia expects the agro-industrial sector to play key role in economic growth of the Country. Accordingly, the creation of Integrated Agro-Industrial Parks has been identified as one of the key mechanisms for accelerating the development of the sector and the structural transformation of agriculture. Agro-industrial parks will play a significant role in transitioning Ethiopia from an agricultural-led into an industrial-led economy. In view of that, the development of Integrated Agro-Industrial Parks has been prioritized in Ethiopia’s national development strategy and four Agro-Industrial Growth Corridors have been selected for piloting the establishment of four Integrated Agro-Industrial Parks. The initiative aims at driving the structural transformation of the Ethiopian economy while reducing rural poverty and creating a better environment for increased investments in agro-processing and allied sectors. Since 1981, FAO has been a strong partner of the Government of Ethiopia towards the achievement of national food security and economic growth goals. FAO is working closely with the Ministry of Agriculture and Natural Resources to empower value chain actors and to promote inclusive, efficient and sustainable agricultural value chains. The present document is the second one of a series of detailed analyses of prioritized commodities, which will lead to inclusive, sustainable and stronger agricultural value chains in the Agro-Commodities Procurement Zone of the pilot Integrated Agro-Industrial Park in Central-Eastern Oromia.
