SNV commenced its operations in Ethiopia in the 1970s responding to a call for assistance to address the famine situation in the country. In alignment with the poverty reduction programme, with its emphasis on agriculture led economic development and accelerated MDG achievement (water and energy), SNV focuses on Agriculture, Renewable Energy and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene sectors.

Within the above mentioned thematic expertises, we provide advisory services; promote the development and brokering of knowledge and support policy dialogue at national level. We work with local government, NGOs, civil society and private sector organizations. We believe these different actors have distinct and complementary roles in the fight against poverty.
