Crisis Overview

The El Niño global climactic event has wreaked havoc on Ethiopia’s summer rains.  This comes on the heels of failed spring rains, and has driven food insecurity, malnutrition and water shortages in affected areas of the country.  A well-coordinated response is already underway and expanding rapidly, although the scale of the developing emergency exceeds resources available to date. Given the lead times necessary for the procurement of relief items, the Government and its international partners have called for early action to this slow onset natural disaster.
