Agriculture and Natural resource


The division of agriculture and natural resources conducts self-initiated and commissioned research in the areas of food security, agricultural production and productivity, natural resource managements, rural development and rural livelihoods. The division also assesses the performance of Ethiopian agriculture every year which is published as part the annual report on Ethiopian economy. We have successfully implemented research projects in the areas of Ethiopian land policy, tenure and land administration system, food security, impacts of the national extension system (PASDEP), multi-dimensional role of agriculture, and water and sanitary systems.  Some of our partners are the World Bank, USAID, Centre for Development Research in Germany (ZEF), UNFAO, the EU, ARD Inc., and Water Aid Ethiopia.
