Year joined


Project Status:

In Progress



CSO Coalition:


Government-led Process

Multi-stakeholder country platform (MCP)

The GFF is utilizing the Joint Consultative Forum (JCF) and its technical arm, the Joint Country Coordination Committee (JCCC), for planning and implementation. It also uses the Health, Population, and Nutrition (HPN) development partners’ group for GFF discussion – made up of representatives of Ethiopia’s major bilateral and multilateral donors

CSO reps on MCP

Consortium of Christian Relief and Development Associations (CCRDA) represents civil society on the JCCC. The consortium is representing the biggest number (more than 400 CSOs) operating in the country and is believed that it would be accepted by the CSOs.

CSO Coordination & Engagement

CSO Platform:

Consortium of Reproductive Health Associations (CORHA) and Consortium of Christian Relief and Development Associations (CCRDA) are coordinating CSOs engagement in the GFF.


As there is no dedicated CSO coalition, there is no TOR.


The current priority actions of CSOs engagement in RMNCAH+N and GFF are focused on creating a common understanding among CSOs and the Government to raise the level of knowledge of the GFF processes and strengthen engagement in the processes, with the aim to support the achievement of the RMNCAH investment case. Civil society is eager to better engage with the national platform and planning process.
