The theme of the 2003 Consolidated Appeals Process is "Hope for the Future", to illustrate the importance of ensuring that humanitarian relief complements and supports recovery programmes. It is a particularly relevant theme for Eritrea, where in 2002 the focus has been on moving away from humanitarian relief towards rehabilitation and recovery.
At the peak of the 1999/2000 drought in Ethiopia, more than 10 million people suffered serious food shortages. Malnourishment was a widespread phenomenon. A tenable but short recovery period followed the drought with good main season harvests in 2000 and 2001 and a good short season harvest in 2000, contributing to a considerable reduction in the numbers of affected and relief dependent people.
Mr. Kenzo Oshima, The United Nations Emergency Relief Coordinator and Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, arrives in Khartoum on Monday, 30 September at the start of a twelve-day mission to Sudan, Kenya, Ethiopia and Eritrea.
