The Tana and Beles river basins in Ethiopia can support the development of agricultural industries, tourism, and fisheries.
For this to happen, however, needs include adequate infrastructure, strengthening of local public and private-sector capacity, and a supportive business climate.

As part of our project, we helped identify the institutional requirements for the creation of a growth corridor development agency that would enhance and improve the following:
Productive land use
Business investment climate
Business development support
