Ethiopia: 2020 Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) Snapshot (January 2020)


The Government of Ethiopia and humanitarian partners released the 2020 Humanitarian Response Plan, which seeks US$ 1 billion to reach 7 million people with food and non-food assistance, including 81 per cent women and children. Food insecurity, conflict displacement, disease outbreaks and floods remain key drivers of humanitarian needs in Ethiopia in 2020. The plan has set out four strategic objectives, including 1) the physical and mental well-being of 5.7 million crisis-affected people is improved; 2) 5.7 million most vulnerable crisis-affected people are supported with basic services; 3) the protection needs of 1.9 million IDPs and other groups with specific needs are identified, recognized and addressed by Government, humanitarian and development actors; and 4) contribute to strengthening recovery and resilience of 1.1 million crisis-affected people and systems.
