Recent policy developments and emerging undertakings by the Ethiopian government signify the building of considerable government commitment to REDD+ implementation and carbon emission reductions in Ethiopia.

In light of the country's ambitious plan for building a climate- resilient green economy, the adoption of REDD+ will also likely reinforce the government's interest in embracing the new financial opportunities that REDD+ may generate.

In sum, analysis of Ethiopia's context for REDD+ policy development and implementation demonstrates the presence of a promising environment in many aspects, yet confronted with serious practical challenges and constraints that need to be addressed.
