Veritas Consulting

National Horticulture Mapping

On Behalf of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Veritas conducted an assessment and mapping of Ethiopia’s horticulture sector. This included mapping and review of various regulatory and institutional bodies, their mandates, and their observed capacities to support investment.

The study also assessed the overall performance of the sector and an analysis of where weaknesses existed within the value chain and the development of robust access to markets. Lastly, the report provided discrete recommendations on how the Dutch Government can support existing and pipeline investors to de-risk their investments, add more value within Ethiopia, and potentially support the development of key logistical infrastructure required. The second set of recommendations provided for ways in which the Dutch Government can strategically support Ethiopian Regulatory institutions strengthening their investment support capacities.
