Joint visit of Heads of UN Rome-Based Agencies to Ethiopia
Description: In September 2017, the heads of the UN food agencies - FAO, IFAD and WFP - traveled together to Ethiopia to assess how to work closer together to eradicate hunger and poverty.

Description: Djibouti – Les corps de 12 jeunes hommes sont trouvés côte à côte en bordure de route. Les jeunes hommes, tous des Éthiopiens de moins de 20 ans, portent des shorts et des débardeurs tachetés de poussière et de sang. Leurs effets personnels sont limités à un sac en plastique avec quelques objets personnels et une bouteille d'eau presque vide. Les conducteurs dans les voitures qui passent à côté sont attristés mais pas surpris.
Ces jeunes hommes sont une infime partie des milliers d'Éthio-piens qui se dirigent vers l'Arabie saoudite, où ils espèrent trouver du travail. Pour y arriver, ils se rendent à Djibouti à pied, puis au Yémen en bateau.
Au Yémen, les migrants payent des passeurs avec l'espoir de tra-verser la frontière et se retrouver en Arabie Saoudite, mais peu arrivent à destination.
Djibouti, une petite nation désertique d'un peu moins de 850 000 habitants a enregistré une augmentation du flux migratoires vers le golfe d'Aden et au-delà.

Description: The 2016 rainy season wasn’t as good as expected, and now, in 2017, pastoralist communities in southeastern Ethiopia find themselves at the mercy of a new drought that they weren’t prepared for. With changing weather patterns, as well as crop and livestock losses, these communities will need help in the form of social safety nets to protect them from the worst. The World Bank and partners support the financing of Ethiopia’s drought response system to help plan for extended drought, reduce the need for humanitarian aid, and ensure that vulnerable communities have the resources they need to stave off hunger and thirst.

Description: Last year, when a devastating drought struck Ethiopia, EU and World Food Programme (WFP) assistance helped keep millions of people from hunger. Follow Tsion's story about rebuilding lives then and how we need to continue the fight against hunger with a new drought hitting parts of the country again.
#WhatFoodMeans is a new campaign which makes people in Europe aware of how the European Union has enabled the World Food Programme to defeat hunger at a critical time for Ethiopia. It showcases how the right partnerships and interventions can achieve more than saving lives: EU assistance ensures Ethiopian families and refugees living in the country, have access to adequate and nutritious food to keep going. EU assistance also prevents smallholding farmers and pastoralists (nomadic livestock herders) from selling their livestock or losing their income.
Drought is affecting new parts of Ethiopia again this year, putting over 5 million people in need of urgent food assistance. Through Tsion's personal experience, find out how, by working together, lives can be saved.
