Ethiopia - High levels of food insecurity persist
The 2008 meher harvest was inadequate in several regions, leaving 12.4 million people in need of food or cash assistance. Furthermore, the planting of this year's Belg crop has been delayed due to insufficient rains fueling fears of a second failed harvest. The situation is especially worrisome in the regions of SNNPR, Oromia, Tigray and Afar, where the Belg harvest provides for the majority of household food needs.
Somalia - Situation still precarious in Somali region
Despite record 2007 meher harvest in many parts of the country, nearly 9 million people are still expected to require food or cash assistance in 2008. Eight million of those are being targeted by the GoE's Productive Safety Net Program, an assistance program for chronically food insecure people. The food security situation in the Somali region continues to be critical.
