The French Development Agency marks its 20th anniversary in Ethiopia. The Agency has financed several projects in Ethiopia such as the Bus Rapid Transit in Addis Ababa, the rehabilitation of the Addis Ababa landfill, and the Ashegoda wind farm.

“This is a moment for us to talk about AFD and what we have been doing for the last 20 years in Ethiopia. But it is also a moment to discuss what we are going to do in the coming  years,” said Ignace Monkam-Daverat, the Regional Director for Ethiopia, Sudan and South Sudan during a press conference held on Friday, May 19, 2017 at the French Embassy.

The Agency will celebrate its anniversary with a series of events such as a workshop on building sustainable cities, city planning and implementation. It   will be co hosted with the Ethiopian Development Research Institute (EDRI) on May 23, 2017 at the Hilton Hotel.
