Executive Summary

Ethiopia’s resource scarcity context presents a daunting challenge, but also a significant opportunity. The country’s current scarcity context includes:

• Low agricultural yields and farm sizes: Even if farm productivity were to increase by a factor of three, the average farm would still not produce enough food for a family of five. With 83% of Ethiopia’s people directly dependent on agriculture for their livelihoods, the country has a major food security challenge; 7.5 million people depend on food safety nets.
