Baltimore, June 9, 2000 -- There is good and bad news from the effort to deal with Ethiopia's food crisis at present. Food transportation is improved and aid pledges are strong, but the border war with Eritrea is not over and the weather so far this year bodes ill for some of the people who are hungry.
Baltimore, June 9, 2000 -- In the middle of a zone of water and food shortages, 2,400 people in one valley in central Ethiopia are embarking on a dam and irrigation project designed to keep them on their land and assure their food supply for decades to come.

ETHIOPIA-ERITREA: Victory statements and accusations continue during talks
Refugees International is gravely concerned that the ongoing fighting between Ethiopia and Eritrea has created the potential for a major humanitarian disaster in Eritrea. Worsening of the crisis, leading to a large-scale loss of civilian life, can be averted only if the international donor community responds immediately by substantially underwriting the emergency requirements of the Eritreans who have fled aerial and artillery bombardments and invading Ethiopian troops.
After three years of drought, which have left southern Ethiopia and other parts of the Horn of Africa teetering once again on the edge of famine, rain has finally come. Yet, a lack of food and water threatens the lives of 16 million people across the Horn of Africa for at least the next six months. Crops have failed and most of the livestock (crucial for food and farming) has died. It will take months, perhaps years, for families to replace their depleted incomes and savings. Even if the rains continue, months will pass before farmers can harvest their recent plantings.
