Policy Outcome:

Following the Addis Ababa City Development Plan (2002-2012), the Addis Ababa City Structure Plan (2017-2027) was created in order to guide the development of the city for the next ten years. The Structure Plan is a binding technical, institutional and policy framework for guiding the long-term social, economic, environmental and spatial development of the city. The structure plan outlines proposals for land use, centres, transportation, social services, municipal services, housing, social development, local economic development, industry, environment, urban and peri-urban agriculture, and tourism as well as implementation strategies and tools. The plan is designed to serve as a roadmap that the City Government can follow with regards to directing public sector investments and related policy interventions. The main objective of the strategic plan is to build consensus, and enable planned, coordinated intervention by implementing agencies to address the current and potential challenges facing the city.
