Résumé du projet
To invest in activities which will build climate resilience and promote low carbon growth in Ethiopia. This will help 1.5 million people to cope with the effects of climate change by 2015, help Ethiopia to protect livelihoods, services, infrastructure and energy supplies from the effects of climate change, and establish its green growth path

Présentation du projet
The UK’s Climate High-Level Investment Programme (CHIP) is supporting Ethiopia to plan and implement its Climate Resilient Green Economy (CRGE) vision. This means becoming a Middle Income Country by 2025 with zero net increase in carbon emissions. The Government of Ethiopia (GoE) plans to use climate finance to complement and strengthen its development investment, building resilience and green growth objectives across sectors. CHIP is providing up to £30 million over nearly four years from September 2012 to March 2016, alongside DFID policy engagement and technical advice. It iscomplemented by DFID’s Strategic Climate Investment Programme, SCIP, which is building the capacity for investments to succeed. UK global and regional programmes provide complementary investment in Ethiopia in climate resilience and green energy.
CHIP is expected to improve the Ethiopian Government’s capacity to tackle climate change. This contributes to ensuring that Ethiopia’s economy is more resilient to climate change, and is growing along a low-carbon trajectory, with direct benefits for low-income households. There are four programme outputs, plus a comprehensive approach to monitoring and evaluation :
1) Strategic mainstreaming : up to £15 million channelled through the Government’s CRGE Facility to help build resilience and green growth across key sectors such as water, energy, transport, agriculture and urban development. Since April 2014 DFID has seconded an adviser to the CRGE Facility Secretariat to provide technical advice and manage risk.
2) Forestry. Up to £3.5 million supporting governance arrangements for sustainable forest management, channelled through the World Bank’s BioCarbon Plus Fund. This will allow the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MEF) to contract the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) to deliver the national forest inventory and a measurement, reporting and verification system to capture emissions reductions from avoided deforestation and forest degradation.
3) Food security. Up to £6 million to the Climate Smart Initiative (CSI) of the Productive Safety Net Programme (PSNP) and Household Asset Building Programme (HABP). CSI is working to ‘climate smart’ elements of these programmes in 2013-15, and inform the design of the next phase of these programmes after 2015. To help oversee and ensure quality of delivery, DFID has seconded a staff member into the donor coordination team.
4) Disaster risk management. This includes two elements. The first is £2.2 million via FAO to pilot innovative ideas and identify improved disaster risk management activities in agriculture to inform national policy and programmes. The second included planned support to the implementation of GoE’s Disaster Risk Management Policy. Thus far this has been limited to CHIP support for DRM analysis in relation to the next phase of PSNP, as GoE has not yet finalised broader DRM institutional arrangements.
5) Monitoring and Evaluation : To support learning, and to ensure accountability and value for money, an independent M&E team has been established, comprising LTS International, B&M Development Consultants and Seneca. This M&E was set up for CHIP’s ‘sister programme’, the Strategic Climate Institutions Programme (SCIP) and has been extended to cover CHIP.
