Jobs Compact Ethiopia

Reporting Organisation: Department for International Development Project Identifier: GB-GOV-1-300393 Activity Status: Implementation Total Budget: £79,826,999

The ‘Ethiopian Jobs Compact’ will support the Government of Ethiopia’s industrialisation efforts, creating over 100,000 jobs for Ethiopians and refugees residing in the country. The Compact will match international support for job creation in Ethiopia to the gradual relaxation of the limitations on labour market access for 30,000 refugees. The job creation elements of the Compact would focus on Ethiopia’s ambitious industrialisation plans. This would support improvements in the investment climate, investment promotion, and improving environmental and social standards in the manufacturing sector. This would create over 100,000 jobs, mainly for young women, in global value chains such as garments and textiles. Support to refugees would include the necessary legislative changes but also training, relocation, rehousing and protection measures for this vulnerable group. It is anticipated that some of these employment opportunities for refugees would be in the manufacturing sector.
