Description: The 2016 rainy season wasn’t as good as expected, and now, in 2017, pastoralist communities in southeastern Ethiopia find themselves at the mercy of a new drought that they weren’t prepared for. With changing weather patterns, as well as crop and livestock losses, these communities will need help in the form of social safety nets to protect them from the worst. The World Bank and partners support the financing of Ethiopia’s drought response system to help plan for extended drought, reduce the need for humanitarian aid, and ensure that vulnerable communities have the resources they need to stave off hunger and thirst.

Description: Last year, when a devastating drought struck Ethiopia, EU and World Food Programme (WFP) assistance helped keep millions of people from hunger. Follow Tsion's story about rebuilding lives then and how we need to continue the fight against hunger with a new drought hitting parts of the country again.
#WhatFoodMeans is a new campaign which makes people in Europe aware of how the European Union has enabled the World Food Programme to defeat hunger at a critical time for Ethiopia. It showcases how the right partnerships and interventions can achieve more than saving lives: EU assistance ensures Ethiopian families and refugees living in the country, have access to adequate and nutritious food to keep going. EU assistance also prevents smallholding farmers and pastoralists (nomadic livestock herders) from selling their livestock or losing their income.
Drought is affecting new parts of Ethiopia again this year, putting over 5 million people in need of urgent food assistance. Through Tsion's personal experience, find out how, by working together, lives can be saved.

Description: As Ethiopia recovers from its worst drought in decades and continues to host the most refugees of any country in Africa, the UN’s Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) provides reliable flights which allow aid workers to reach remote places with much needed assistance. The WFP-managed service frees dozens of UN agencies and non-governmental organisations from the stress of having to arrange safe, fast and efficient ways of getting their staff and supplies to destination. The European Commission supports UNHAS in 10 African countries including Ethiopia.
