Press release of 03.04.2017 | BERLIN/ADDIS ABABA – East Africa is currently experiencing the worst drought in fifty years. In Ethiopia alone, some 5.6 million people are suffering severe hunger. German Development Minister Gerd Müller will today visit one of the worst hit areas of the country, the Somali region, which lies in the east of Ethiopia. The nomadic people living there can find virtually no grazing land for their herds and their very livelihood is under threat. Around 1.7 million people in the Somali region are already in dire need of food aid.
Ethiopia is experiencing its worst drought in decades. The reason: the climate phenomenon El Niño. As a result, 16 million people in the country are reliant on food aid – last year it was half as many.
To ensure food security the farmers need to plant crops, for which above all they require water. On behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is working together with the Ethiopian Government to promote sustainable land management and to improve the water supply.
