It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Federal Integrated Infrastructure Development Coordinating Agency Website. As we all know infrastructure development is a strong foundation for social and economic growth of a developing country, like Ethiopia.

Ethiopia is currently in a historic journey of rapid Growth and Transformation. In recent years, it has embarked on implementation of major infrastructure projects including roads, rail, airports, power and telecom; which are serving the country as powerful engines to propel its economic growth and transformation, with impressive results. However, this historic journey has not been an easy road. During this period of its rapid growth and transformation, the country inevitably faced numerous challenges; especially in the areas of coordination and integration of the major infrastructure projects.

These have caused adverse impacts on the whole life cycle of projects, health, safety, security and wellbeing of the communities and the environment of the country. Most of these problems often stem from poor planning, coordination and integration of major infrastructure projects; eventually leading to potential risks arising from delay in schedules, frequent scope changes and ultimately project deliverables that don’t meet expectations.

In order to find proper solutions and overcome these challenges pertaining to program management, coordination and integration of major infrastructure projects to minimize or avoid potential risks and To develop national indices and formula for the assessment of compensation; the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia has been carefully planning to put in place an effective institutional mechanism, partially by learning from other country’s best practices in this area. It is with this effect that a proclamation was issued by parliament to establish the Federal Integrated Infrastructure Development Coordinating Agency of Ethiopia (Proclamation No 857/2014).

It will also outline the strategies, road maps and technology tools the Agency will have to employ in order to fulfill its mission, institutionalize and develop a culture of best practices and high standards in the areas of planning, design, implementation, management, coordination and integration of major infrastructure projects in the country.

As the Director General of FIIDCA, I will be happy in establishing more cooperation with the government, stakeholders and the community to alleviate existing problems in the areas of management, coordination and integration of the major infrastructure projects.

Finally, thank you for visiting our website; we are happy to answer your questions, serve you, respond to your needs, listen to your suggestions and welcome you to look forward to your contributions to the wellbeing of the communities and the country.

Director General
