Ethiopia

Swedesurvey has had a long standing presence in Ethiopia. We have undertaken numerous aerial photography missions and an institutional building project at the Ethiopian Mapping Authority which began in 1982 and continued until 2000. In 2010, Swedesurvey provided consultancy services for more in depth preparation of programme documentation for RELAE (Responsible Land Administration for Ethiopia) on behalf of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland. Our team consisted of a team leader and experts in land administration, local governance systems, capacity building and cultural and social aspects related to land administration. The assignment resulted in a project document and draft ToR for the next phase.
