GIZ- Social and economic reintegration of ex-combatants and conflict-affected groups in Ethiopia

As a provider of international cooperation services for sustainable development and international education work, GIZ - Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit – is dedicated to building a future worth living around the world.

We have over 50 years of experience in a wide variety of areas, including rural and economic development, education and employment, energy and the environment, and peace and security. Together with our partners, we work to deliver flexible, effective and cost-effective solutions that offer people better prospects and sustainably improve their living conditions. Of our 18,260 employees in some 120 countries, almost 70 per cent are national personnel working in the field.

As a public-benefit German federal enterprise, we are committed to meeting our clients’ high standards with regard to transparency and accountability. German and European values are central to our work.

The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) is our main commissioning party. European Union institutions, the United Nations, the private sector and national governments benefit from our services, too.

In Ethiopia GIZ has been implementing development programmes on behalf of the German government for over 40 years jointly with our national partners. The focus of our work in the country is on vocational education, sustainable use of natural resources, land management and food security, biodiversity and forestry.

Further programmes enhance the development of a sustainable textile sector and renewable energies

The project “Social and economic reintegration of ex-combatants and conflict-affected groups in Ethiopia” responds to the request of the Prime Minister of Ethiopia to the Federal Government of Germany to support the reintegration of disarmed and demobilized ex-combatants.

The promise of reintegration support for former insurgent groups is part of the Ethiopian Government’s peace initiative. Supporting the Government in delivering on that promise and helping the members of these insurgent groups to regain a civilian life therefore contributes to maintaining the momentum of the peace initiative.

Derived thereof, the main objective of the project is ex-combatants from Ethiopian resistance groups receive effective support to promote their social and economic reintegration.

The methodological approach of GIZ’s technical support is to strengthen the capacities of the government and relevant national and regional institutions to deliver
on the promise of reintegration support, while extending individual capacity building support to ex-combatants.

The project is broken down in three fields of activity:

1. improving the capacities of the governmental Project Office for Reintegration and its regional counterparts, including the development of standards, procedures and implementation strategies;

2. supporting the social reintegration of ex-combatants through an Information, Counselling and Referral System (ICRS);

3. supporting the professional reintegration of ex-combatants through life skills and vocational training, as well as technical assistance in entering the labor market.
