Cultural, scientific and technical cooperation
Our cooperation with Ethiopia is based on long-standing symbols such as the Franco-Ethiopian school, Lycée Guebre-Mariam, in Addis Ababa and the Alliance Française in Addis Ababa.
The 2011-2013 partnership framework document on French cooperation support for Ethiopia’s growth and development plan (€421million) focuses on infrastructure (energy, urban development and transport), water and rural development (irrigation). In addition to these initiatives led by the Agence Française de Développement (French Development Agency, AFD), France is involved in the governance sector (justice, administration reform with the French National School for Public Administration, support for civil society and decentralized cooperation with the support of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development).
This partnership framework document was extended to the end of 2015 and given additional funding of €311million. This extension should enable a transition towards a joint plan at European level that will be implemented from 2016.
