  • The first humanitarian convoys since December 2021 arrived in Tigray in early April. However, ground access to Tigray remains tenuous, and sustained transport of aid by road is urgently needed.

  • Displacement in eastern Amhara has increased sharply since January amid continued insecurity along the border with Tigray.

  • Conflict-driven staple food price increases and persistent administrative impediments to access highlight the need for assistance to scale up across northern Ethiopia.

  • USAID/BHA announced an additional $313 million in FY 2022 funding to respond to humanitarian needs in northern Ethiopia on April 21.
