Overview :

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Ethiopia Country Office is strengthening its engagement and focus on Support to Judicial Reform in Ethiopia.

The reform agenda rolled out in phases with quick win activities and a three years’ reform plan. The quick win activities include re-establishing the Judicial Affairs Advisory Council (JAAC) which was part of the Legal and Justice Affairs Advisory Council (LJAC) under the Office of the Attorney General and developing a detailed action plan to guide the reform. With the reestablishment of the JAAC the FSC commissioned the revision of the Federal Courts Proclamation law and the Judicial Administration Council Establishment of Proclamation. These two laws were deemed to be foundational for the reform activities. Parallel to the legislative revision the FSC embarked on implementing its three years’ reform plan. The plan aims at strengthening judicial independence and accountability, increasing access to justice and legal empowerment, and enhancing court performance through effective and efficient service delivery. 

The geographical location of federal courts, especially that of Federal First Instance Courts is made following administrative zoning. Through the reform agenda, federal courts aim at increasing access to justice and improving judicial efficiency. In order to achieve this objective, the federal courts would like to assess whether the existing geographical zoning of federal courts is suitable to enhance access to justice, legal empowerment and judicial efficiency.

 Therefore, as part of its overall support to the reform agenda, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in collaboration with the Federal Supreme Court, is providing assistance in the implementation of the three years’ reform project plan through a project titled ‘Support to Judicial Reform in Ethiopia Project’. As part of this support, and in response to the request from the FSC, UNDP is recruiting two consultants to conduct an assessment on the existing federal judicial map and the need for geographical re-zoning.
