Ethiopia: Humanitarian Response Situation Report No. 11 (as at 30 April 2017)


 At least 2.2 million people require food assistance, in addition to the 5.6 million relief food beneficiaries identified in the 2017 Humanitarian Requirements Document. The number is expected to further increase given the poor performance of the spring1 rains, in line with the National Metereological Agency forecast.

 Measles and AWD pose a high risk of morbidity and mortality amongst vulnerable and malnourished children in the drought-hit areas, particularly children and pregnant and breastfeeding women.

 A ‘command and control’ model of coordination was established within the Command Post to step-up the response and curb the spread of the AWD outbreak.

 The Methodology Sub-Working Group convened its first meeting on 27 April, and proposed an early assessment in mid-May to enable early resource mobilization and a timely humanitarian assistance to affected communities.

 NDRMC presented its Early Recovery Framework Concept Note to parnters.
