About our Mission

Our mission is to provide comprehensive policy analysis, guidance, and support to drive the multidimensional development endeavors of our country. We aim to play a pivotal role in shaping Ethiopia's future by preparing medium and long-term national development plans through effective coordination with sectoral ministries and relevant government agencies.

We are committed to developing robust public investment administration and management capabilities to ensure efficient appraisal, selection, and prioritization of policies, programs, and development projects. By enhancing these capacities, we strive to maximize the impact of public resources and promote sustainable and inclusive development.

A key aspect of our mission is the regular monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of development plans, policies, programs, and projects. Through rigorous M&E practices, we assess the effectiveness and efficiency of our initiatives, identify areas for improvement, and make evidence-based decisions to optimize the allocation of resources.

In addition to our core functions, we are dedicated to fostering a culture of collaboration and knowledge sharing. We actively engage with stakeholders, both within and outside the government, to leverage expertise, promote innovative approaches, and build strong partnerships. By harnessing the collective wisdom and experience of diverse actors, we aim to achieve greater synergy and impact in our development efforts.

Our mission is grounded in the principles of transparency, accountability, and good governance. We are committed to upholding the highest standards of integrity and ensuring that the trust placed in us by the Ethiopian people is honored. We strive to be a reliable and trusted source of policy analysis, planning, and implementation support, driven by the best interests of our nation.

Through our mission, we aim to contribute to the sustainable and inclusive growth of Ethiopia, enabling it to thrive in an ever-changing global landscape. By providing strategic direction, effective planning, and rigorous evaluation, we aspire to create an enabling environment for the realization of Ethiopia's development aspirations and the improved well-being of its citizens.
