Ethiopia - Situation report January 2017

Ethiopia - Situation report January 2017
Jan 2017

Highlights

  • Humanitarian needs in Ethiopia have halved since last year owing to generally average crop production, wide-scale
    humanitarian coverage and proactive Government response in 2016.
  • Food insecurity levels remain alarming despite improving national food availability. Since July, the number of priority hotspots has increased by 15 percent – largely owing to slow livelihoods recovery and emergence of new drought in southern and southeastern pastoral areas.
  • FAO requires USD 12.5 million to address needs of pastoralists affected by new drought in southern and southeastern Ethiopia. The failure of a critical rainfall season across the Horn of Africa has caused critical shortages of pasture and water, resulting in extreme emaciation, disease outbreaks and the deaths of tens of thousands of livestock in affected areas of Ethiopia.
