Abstract

The Ethiopian Growth and Transformation Plan was a five-year plan put forward by the Ethiopian Government to modernize, stabilize, and drastically improve the quality of life for everyone in Ethiopia. The plan was centrally focused on encouraging foreign investment opportunities, and undertook many large scale development projects. To accomplish this plan, Addis Ababa attempted to pursue grand power-generating abilities and to become a hydropower juggernaut in the region, as well as secure energy resources with membership in the East African Power Pool. This presentation evaluates how Ethiopia’s developmental and intergovernmental efforts have helped in achieving the desired growth and transformation
