Ethiopia Launches P4G National Platform

The Ethiopian government has launched a P4G national platform as part of its ambitious plan to achieve development through green growth. P4G (Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030), supported by the Danish government, is a space for innovative partnerships with businesses, national and city leaders, financiers, and community development advocates to work towards solutions in support of sustainable and inclusive development.

Speaking at the launch, which took place on the sidelines of the Global Green Growth Conference, Ethiopia’s Minister of Environment, Dr. Gemeldo Dallen Tussie, said Ethiopia, like other countries affected by the changing climate, needs to forge coalitions with different players to build resilience and sustainable growth.

"Involving the private sector plays a very important role if we are to meet the national and international long-term targets. I believe private-public partnerships will be critical in meeting the sustainable development goals and my country remains committed to encouraging and also closely working with the private sector," said the minister.
