After the El Niño weather phenomenon that severely affected Ethiopia and left 10.2 million people in need of emergency assistance in 2015/16, Ethiopia is once again subject to severe weather conditions causing the failure of the Hageya/Deyr rains (fall rain) in the southern and eastern rainfall belt. The severe water shortages resulting from negative Indian Ocean Dipole (IOD) induced drought have caused high numbers of livestock deaths due to lack of pasture and high rate of disease.

Dear Colleagues,

The ETH161 Appeal has been both extended (for 5 additional months) and revised, for the following reasons: late receipt of funds, underfunding of some components and challenges and delays in implementation, including massive coordination effort and heavy bureaucratic process to get permission to respond to particular geographic area, which didn’t stop requesting members to prioritize the limited resource received and take action to respond.

THE CRISIS:
The current food security crisis in Ethiopia appear to be the result of a combination of factors that includes the pre-El Niño failure of the spring rains and the El Niño induced late onset, erratic and early cessation of the main summer rains. With the exception of some unseasonal rains, the northern half of Ethiopia faces a period of between five (eastern highlands agriculture zone) to eight months (western highlands agriculture zone) without rain.

For several months, the world’s newest nation, South Sudan, has experienced armed conflict, the death toll from which has been cautiously estimated to be in the thousands. Nearly 900,000 people have been uprooted since fighting began, with the violence continuing unabated despite a ceasefire in January.

One of the most fought over towns is Malakal, capital of oil-producing northern Upper Nile state, from where masses of civilians have been forced to flee. And one of those people is Nyagnet Req, the mother of four daughters and three sons.
