10 million requiring food assistance

Much of Ethiopia is experiencing severe drought conditions, excacerbated by El Niño which greatly affected the 2015 spring and summer rains¹. This has led to a food crisis, with delayed planting, poor germination and crop stunting along with poor pasture regeneration and poor livestock productivity.

Although parts of the country have received rains - and even localised flooding - in 2016, more than 10 million people require food assistance, with more than 450,000 described as severely malnourished².
