Tana and Beles growth corridor strategy, Ethiopia

The Tana and Beles river basins in Ethiopia have a substantial potential for irrigated and hydropower development. Hydropower installations are being developed and it is expected that significant groundwater reserves will be made available.

Economic growth plans for Tana and Beles basins, Ethiopia The growth plan for Tana and Beles basins included an integrated regional economic development framework and a practical investment promotion scheme.

Additional growth potential has been identified in downstream (agriculture-led) industry development, tourism services, and fisheries, provided this is supported by adequate infrastructure, local public and private sector capacity strengthening and a supportive business climate.

The World Bank employed us to aid the development of an integrated growth corridor strategy, including the selection of focus sectors as economic basis of the growth corridor and the formulation of sector strategies and interventions.

We also helped in identifying the institutional requirements for the creation of a growth corridor development agency. The agency would be aimed at enhancing and improving:

  • Private investment

  • Productive land use

  • Business investment climate

  • Institutional strengthening

  • Capacity development

  • good governance

  • Business development support
