The project is the second phase of REILA (Responsible and Innovative Land Administration) that supports the development of land administration in Ethiopia. Ethiopia is one of the least developed countries (LDCs) according to the OECD's classification. All the land in Ethiopia is owned by the government but the farmers have traditional extensive user rights to their lands. Official registration of such lands increases further the tenure security. Increased land tenure security encourages farmers to use their lands in a sustainable way and to make investments to raise the productivity of the lands. Official registration also reduces conflicts over land.The project started in August in 2017 in alignment with the Ethiopia?s fiscal year.The long term impact of th e project is to achieve improved livelihood and economic well-being of the rural population through promotion of sustainable land management practices. The outcome is to have improved and appropriate land administration system for Ethiopia and improved lan d tenure security for rural land users. Ministry of Agriculture manages the implementation of the project in Ethiopia. Finland's support to the intervention is 7.1 MEUR with a total budget of 781 MEUR. The one year extension is proposed with the option of 700000 eur additional funding for the technical aid. This option has been part of the original invitation to tender and procurement process.
