Ethiopia has completed the most widespread and impressive seed distribution campaign ever undertaken during an emergency in the country’s history. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and over 25 NGOs and agencies reached 377 woredas across six regions with a historic 32 000 tonnes of seed. The seed provided restored depleted household supplies after a catastrophic El Niño induced-drought crisis in 2015 and 2016. As a result of the campaign, Ethiopia’s Government and humanitarian community saved close to USD 1 billion by enabling farming households to grow their own food, independently.
