CLIMATE SIGNIFICANCE

Wars, droughts and economic development have played a large part in reducing Ethiopia’s natural potential and augmenting its vulnerability to climate change.

Hydroelectric plants represent around 88% of the total installed electricity capacity. Ethiopia has access to large rivers which offer excellent hydropower potential.

However, soil erosion, deforestation and biodiversity loss have considerably reduced the country’s agricultural potential. Ethiopia is one of humanity’s cradle of plant domestication. Due to both human (mostly war) and natural factors (mostly drought), the country has experienced famine at various moments in its history.

Ethiopia’s tree cover has gone from 35% in 1900 to 10% in the 21st century. Different economic structures and ways of organising production have had a deep influence over the natural conservation of the country. This is a further proof that humanity is capable of devising new ways of organising labour and that it has a strong influence over the amount, the quality and the footprint of our society.

Binary solutions such as capitalism vs. communism won’t work in this new frame. We need a sustainable future, structured by a sustainable economic model. Ethiopia wants to become Africa’s sustainable grain basket, and it has ideas on how to get there. Explore our projects active in Ethiopia now!

DATA INSIGHTS

The World Bank categorises Ethiopia is a low-income country. To understand Ethiopia’s situation in the fight against climate change, it is helpful to show its historic carbon emissions and exposure to climate risk. The following plots provide an overview of Ethiopia’s historic greenhouse gas emissions in perspective with global emission levels, as well as the country’s relative vulnerability and preparedness to climate change.
