Title: RJOC - Ethiopia


This report provides quantitative evidences supporting policy options for the Rural Job Opportunity Creation Strategy (RJOCS) in Ethiopia. A Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) model specifically modified for the context of Ethiopia is employed to address the impacts of six policy options. For the purpose of the study, a disaggregated version of a 2015/16 Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) has been developed for Ethiopia. Multi-sectoral analytical tools are used to describe the Ethiopian economy and inform about which sector owns the greatest potential to generate employment. Modelling results of policy reforms are presented, discussed to draw policy implications.
