Ethiopia El-Niño driven crisis

Ethiopia slow onset natural disaster

Failed spring/belg rains increased food insecurity and malnutrition, wreaking havoc on planting and livestock production across the country. This was quickly followed by the arrival of El Niño weather conditions in June that affected rainfall patterns of the summer/kiremt rains that provides much of the country’s agriculture harvest and potable water. This combination will result in a slow-onset emergency in Ethiopia.
