Number of people who need emergency food aid in "belg" producing and pastoralist areas for the coming five months has decreased closely by half a million people, said the National Disaster Risk Management Commission, quoting an assessment conducted on those areas.
The Commission in collaboration with stakeholders has conducted an assessment on the level of food insecurity in those areas last June to determine the number of people who need emergency food aid between August to December 2016.
