Ethiopia is a country with high annual deforestation rate of around 0.93%. Recent estimates indicate that Ethiopia’s high-forest has declined from nearly 40% of land cover a century ago, to approximately 3.6%. To address this, Ethiopia has committed to developing REDD+. The government submitted a REDD+ Program Idea Note (R-PIN) in 2008 and a final REDD+ Preparation Proposal (R-PP) and Climate Resilient Green Economy (CRGE) strategy in 2011 to spearhead national efforts to reach carbon neutrality by 2025. A national REDD+ strategy is expected to be finalized during REDD+ Readiness implementation.
