ETHIOPIA: Forest fires still raging
By Yves Guinand and Dechassa Lemessa, UN-Emergencies Unit for Ethiopia
1. Introduction and background
For many years the importance of wild plants in subsistence agriculture in the developing world as a food supplement and as a means of survival during times of drought and famine has been overlooked. Generally, the consumption of such so-called ‘wild-food’ has been and still is being under-estimated. This may very well be the case for Ethiopia, a so-called ‘biodiversity hot-spot’ and known as a centre of origin for a significant number of food plants (Bell, 1995).

ZIMBABWE: Britain recalls ambassador
The United States calls upon the governments of Eritrea and Ethiopia to remain "fully engaged" in the Organization of African Unity peace process, and extends its "unqualified support" to the continuing efforts of the OAU and the personal representative of the Algerian president, Mr. Ahmed Ouayahia, the U.S.
By Cheryl Hatch
Eritrea is a tiny piece of land the size of Pennsylvania in the Horn of Africa with a population of 3.5 million. It is one of Africa's poorest countries, with a population evenly divided between Muslims and Christians. The country had been colonized by Britain and Italy before the United Nations declared it a self-governed region mandated to its southern neighbor, Ethiopia, in 1952. For 30 years and with little international support, Eritrea waged a war for independence from Ethiopia, which had a population of 60 million and military support of the Soviet Union.

NAIROBI, 8 March (IRIN) - Forest fires raging out of control in Ethiopia's southeast Oromiya state have destroyed tens of thousands of hectares of land, and urgent appeal has been issued for international aid.
For 30 years, Eritrean women fought alongside men for independence from Ethiopia. Now, the latest border skirmishes with Ethiopia threaten to undo many of the gains the women of Eritrea have made in a patriarchal society.

It is 5 a.m., and I wake in Asmara, Eritrea's capital, to the sound of the muezzin calling faithful Muslims to prayer before dawn. I'm on the streets before 6, when the sound of cathedral bells fills the sunrise sky.
In Asmara, there's no sign of war.

ETHIOPIA: UNHCR to reconsider refugee status
Baltimore, March 1, 2000 -- As many as eight million Ethiopians face severe food shortages this year, the United Nations World Food Program announced last week. Large amounts of food are needed, transportation routes are long and difficult, and grain must be pre-positioned before July rains render roads impassable, international aid officials note.
