The ongoing consultation phase being led by the Ethiopian National Dialogue Commission (ENDC) is a crucial step towards addressing the country’s pressing challenges in a sustainable manner.

Held at the Adwa Victory Memorial Museum Hall, the ENDC is currently advising the regional advisory chapter, which includes more than 2,000 delegates from across the country.

“It is the responsibility of the Commission to ensure that the agenda identified in this consultation phase is included during the formulation of the agenda for the upcoming National Conference,” said Mesfin Araya, Professor and Chief Commissioner of the ENDC, as he addressed the long-term issues facing Ethiopia.

The agenda gathering phase is taking place over seven consecutive days, from May 29th to June 4th, 2024. More than 2,000 participants from diverse communities across the country have come together to provide their input.

“This forum is a demonstration of the progress the community has made in exercising its right to consult equally with other stakeholders on matters of national importance – a process that has not gone far enough in the past,” the Commission stated in a press release.

“This program is a critical chapter in the Commission’s efforts to gather public discussions on the most fundamental national issues that need to be addressed by all stakeholders,” the statement concluded.

The ENDC’s inclusive approach to the consultation phase underscores the importance of community engagement and collective problem-solving as Ethiopia works towards a more sustainable and equitable future.
