Ethiopia strategy support program (ESSP) uri icon


  • The Ethiopia Strategy Support Program (ESSP) is a collaborative program undertaken by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and the Ethiopian Development Research Institute (EDRI). During Phase I (September 2004 to June 2008) ESSP conducted a varied program of economic research and provided extensive technical and analytical support towards the establishment of the Ethiopia Commodity Exchange (ECX). Phase II, which began in July 2008 and ended in October 2013, focused on capacity strengthening of local institutions, including the EDRI, while continuing a program of policy-relevant research and analysis. This arrangement continues into Phase III which started in November 2013 and runs until the end of 2016
