ACORD has been working in Ethiopia since 1995 to address the key issues of sustainable livelihoods and social justice. Today ACORD works in four regions in Ethiopia with agro-pastoral communities in Gambella and Boranna region as well as urban and peri-urban communities in Addis Ababa and Dire Dawa.

Livelihoods: ACORD's approach is to work through traditional community based structures such as Iddirs supporting them to deliver essential services as well as engage in policy formulation and decision making that effects the livelihoods and well-being of their members.

HIV/AIDS: ACORD focuses on awareness raising and capacity building of various community based anti-aids groups.
Gender and women's empowerment: is integrated into all our work in Ethiopia, both at a practical level addressing livelihood and more strategically to enhance the capacity of women's organisations in terms of participation and decision making in community affairs.
