Achieving the growth and transformation plan (GTP) in line with sustaining climate-resilient green economy.
By Anwar Yahia |
Ethiopia’s Climate-Resilient Green Economy (CRGE) has always been a question when it comes to the country’s growth and transformation plan (GTP). Though, industrialization can be achieved through green growth, there has never been 100% green growth in history of man kind. Countries used to grow polluting and reverse the pollution with the dirty muscle accumulated. So, the question was how can our country can pioneer this total green growth? Eco-industrial-park can be a single entity within green growth, but green economy is not merely manufacturing. Rather, it is the whole economy guided through principles of sustainability. To fill the gap research was launched on may this year and last week it has come with prioritized problem sectors for research which answers the question above. These are to:-
- identify existing policy gaps towards green economy and fill the gap,
- Identify existing institutional and structural gap with in our institutions and their structure, and
- identify existing innovation skills find gap and forward conducive environment to hasten green economy.
With these points “the track can be laid for the GTP’s train to reach the goal of being a middle-income country (MIC) by 2025”
For me these three points will complete the gap and answers those questions asked by intellectuals on how to achieve the target.
