Officials said that by incorporating the term “Smart” to the Green Village, it means that besides having environmentally-friendly amenities, they will incorporate appropriate ICT capabilities in the villages to ensure their connectivity.

At this stage we are bringing model houses that are affordable with components of raw materials that are sustainable and that can be sourced and manufactured locally,” he said.

The green village is located in a rural set-up with existing or potential activities in the field of agriculture in order to test the impact of sustainable energy use, connectivity, and smart mobility solutions.

The Mayor of Gondar, Berehuen, said the pilot project will be expanded to other parts of the Amhara region and in the country. “We think, if successful, we can export the solutions to the rest of the country. We have model houses we will use in those villages and close to a year, we will have something to present,” he added.
