ACT Appeal ETH 161

Response to El Nino-caused Drought Emergency - The current food security crisis/drought in Ethiopia appear to be the result of a combination of factors that includes the pre El Nino failure of the spring rains and the El Nino induced late onset, erratic and early cessation of the main summer rains. According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA), more than 10 million people in Ethiopia are at risk of hunger following the worst drought in 30 years.

The ACT Forum in Ethiopia is planning to support ongoing response efforts by targeting 137,118 individual members affected by drought through food assistance, early recovery and restoration of livelihoods, health and nutrition support, agricultural and livestock production and WASH.
