The Ethiopian government has drawn on its own resources and international aid to boost economic development.
Through significant investment in public services, it has lifted millions out of poverty over the past two decades.
School enrolment has increased dramatically, poverty has halved in the two decades to 2018, and services such as clean water are more readily available. Economic growth has grown by about 8 percent per year.
Despite the progress in creating jobs through industrialization, there are continuing development deficiencies, such as malnutrition, maternal mortality and inequality for women as well as the social fragility caused by migration through the transit route of Ethiopia.
ASI has supported this expanding economy with projects in mining and geothermal, education and public services such as justice and service delivery.
