Who We Are

STIP is a comprehensive research and policy support program on STRUCTURAL TRANSFORMATION AND INDUSTRIAL POLICY in Ethiopia. The program is designed to run concurrently with the second Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP-II), serving as a knowledge backstop for policymakers and other key stakeholders. The program focuses on the strategic areas of light manufacturing development and agricultural transformation as well as the broader agenda of structural change. The range of activities that are be undertaken by a network of local and international experts includes applied research, knowledge management, policy analysis and capacity building. The program’s ambition is to contribute to evidence-based policymaking, monitoring and evaluation in the critical areas of industrial development and structural transformation in Ethiopia.


STIP is hosted in and directed by the Ethiopian Development Research Institute (EDRI). The program is designed broadly enough to be able to create a platform for multiple stakeholders to partner with EDRI in various aspects of the initiative including research, knowledge management and capacity building. The core program is funded by Agence Française de Développement (AFD).
