Ethiopia jobs protection facility learning brief

In 2020, we partnered with FCDO Ethiopia and KfW (on behalf of BMZ) to implement an emergency jobs protection facility for manufacturers in various industrial parks in Ethiopia. The main objective of this intervention was to ensure continuity of employment for workers and the post-Covid sustainability of Ethiopia’s textile and garment manufacturing sector.

Following the conclusion of the Facility, we also undertook a review of the programme’s performance in line with specific objectives on behalf of the funders. This learning brief summarises the findings of the report and highlights the challenges, lessons and impact of the programme.
