Integrated Argo-Industrial Parks


Ethiopia plans to construct 17 Integrated Agro-Industrial Parks (IAIPs) across selected corridors in all regions with the support of UNIDO. Phase I consists four parks that are under construction. The Integrated parks will help to facilitate value addition on Agricultural products.

The Agro-industrial parks will include open area production zones, controlled environment growing, precision farming, knowledge hubs and research facilities, rural hubs, agri-infrastructure, collection centers, primary processing hubs, social infrastructure and Agri-marketing infrastructure, among others.

Rural transformation centres will be established to serve as raw material aggregation points in the catchment areas (100 km radius) of each park that include warehouses, input supply, sorting, grading, extension services, pre-processing activities and microfinance.
