- This Network Paper argues that a substantial new opportunity for people-centred disaster risk assessment in Ethiopia can be found in the information and analysis system recently established within the Ministry of Agriculture, through the Livelihoods Integration Unit.

At the World Food Conference in 1974, governments proclaimed that 'every man, woman and child has the inalienable right to be free from hunger and malnutrition in order to develop their physical and mental faculties'. They promised that, within a decade, 'no child would go hungry'. Ten years later, in Ethiopia, between 800,000 and a million people died in one of the worst famines in the country's modern history. The scale and severity of the famine eventually triggered an unprecedented international response.
