Présentation
As a follow up of the in depth assessment conducted within the SINCE project inception phase, the present project has been developed for contributing to reduce irregular migration from Northern and Central Ethiopia by creating greater economic and employment opportunities. The general objective of this project is to support the Government of the FDR of Ethiopia (GoE) in the creation of decent and productive job opportunities for young women and men through the development of strategic sectors such as the textile and garment industry. This will be done through the development of local capacities (at managerial, technical and institutional levels) in the textile industry through a public private partnership approach. This project proposal also responds to a specific Official request sent by the Ethiopian MoI for supporting the T&G sector . Finally, this project has also been articulated in line with the Valletta Action Plan under the chapter development benefits of migration and addressing root causes of irregular migration and forced displacement. Two priority areas will be targeted : 1.Enhance employment opportunities and revenue-generating activities in regions of origin and transit of migrants to enhance the professional skills and employability of young people.2.Facilitate responsible private investment in Africa agriculture, agri-business and agro-industries and boost intra-African trade and exports of agricultural products through agricultural financial activities
