Overview of Food Security Assistance

Emergency food assistance, like that being provided this year in Ethiopia and Eritrea, is necessary to save lives. The U.S. believes that without this assistance, the development track that these countries are on will be further eroded, leaving populations at greater risk when the next food crisis occurs.

The U.S. recognizes that food assistance alone cannot break the cycle of famine. The U.S. is assisting leaders of famine prone countries in growing their economies and addressing the underlying causes of repeated food crises.

Update on Emergency Relief Operations in the Region
The overall picture of acute food insecurity in the Greater Horn Region continues to improve significantly. In some areas, the picture has improved dramatically; in some the situation has remained stable but poor, and in a few areas there has been a distinct deterioration in the situation largely because of poor rainfall in the March-June period. This issue of the Greater Horn of Africa Food Security Update scans the region to take note of the changes since the last update on this topic (March, 2001 Update).
