10.10.2017      Ethiopia Lifts 5.3m People out of Poverty over 5 years.  ENA

Ethiopia has managed to lift about 5.3 million people out of the poverty over the past five years, according to an Interim Report on 2015/16 Poverty Analysis Study. The report which was launched today indicated that the East African nation has made tremendous progress towards eradicating poverty between 2010/11and 2015/16. It also indicated that the national poverty incidence has declined markedly over the recent years, in which the national headcount poverty rate fell to 23.5 percent in 2015/16 from 29.6 percent in 2010/11. The number of poor people has also declined to 21.8 million from 25.1 million, while the population has increased from 84 million to 93 million during the reported period.

Deputy Commissioner of Plan Commission, Getachew Adem said both rural and urban areas witnessed a decline in food poverty in the stated period. In spite of the recent El-Nino driven drought that drastically hit many parts of the country, regional food poverty declined in all regional states except in Harari, which remains almost unchanged. Wide-ranging and multifaceted pro-poor programs that have been implemented in rural and urban areas like intensification of agriculture, infrastructure development, and food security, among others have contributed in poverty reduction, he said. Modernizing agriculture and expanding industrial development that could create more job and diversification of exports is critical in poverty reduction, he added. The efforts that have been exerted in agriculture towards ensuring food security coupled with those in other socio-economic sectors have helped Ethiopia meet most of MDGs, Getachew noted.

According to the report, efforts of the government to create favorable environment for private sector investment, job creations, and distribution of subsidized food items to urban poor also contributed to poverty reduction. Representative of the Development Assistance Group (DAG), Andrea Ghione said Ethiopia has taken significant steps in ensuring strong economic growth and robust progress in the provision of social services. He said a report such as the poverty analysis report being launched today stands out among the factors that are helping to drive these advancements.

“The report will be an important anchor for programs that are targeting funding for poverty reduction where it is needed most - to the poorest and the most vulnerable. More importantly it will allow for appropriate policy alignment at all levels,” he indicated. Furthermore he stated that development partners remain committed to partnering with Ethiopia to build on the achievements of GTP-II. The report has prepared by the National Plan Commission with the financial and technical support from DAG and the UNDP.

29.9.2017        Floods Leave Thousands Homeless in Ethiopia. Adane Bikila,

Extensive flooding has displaced more than 93 000 people in crisis-torn Ethiopia. The Ambeira zone in Afar region, special zones surrounding the capital Addis Ababa , Jima, South-east Shewa and South-west Shewa in the Oromia region have been worst affected by the incessant rains. It is estimated that a total of 18 628 households have been affected in the East African country.

In the background of the recent floods, civil unrest along the Oromo and Somali border, which stretches more than 1 000km, has complicated the situation. Ethnic clashes have led to the displacement of more than 45 000 households (225 000 people) from Oromia and Somali regions, including into the neighboring Hareri region. "The flood situation is happening in different areas than the conflict. The capacity of the response is being outstretched due to the simultaneity of the two disasters," said a spokesperson of the Ethiopian Red Cross Society.

The organisation has deployed teams to conduct emergency needs assessments and distributions of emergency shelter in flood-affected areas. It has also begun distribution of relief to communities displaced by conflict. Ambulances have been provided to evacuate and offer first aid services to those wounded. Ehiopia, Africa's second biggest country by population (102 million), is also enduring food shortages and an outbreak of cholera that has killed 800 people in 2017.

31.8.2017        Ethiopia reaffirms its open-door refugee policy. Xinhua

Ethiopia's Foreign Affairs Ministry on Thursday reaffirmed the country's open-door policy for refugees that are flocking into Ethiopia mainly from its unsettled neighboring countries. Presently hosting more than 850,000 refugees from 21 countries with South Sudanese, Somalis, Eritreans, and Sudanese making up the majority, Hirut Zemene, Ethiopian Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister, affirmed the open-door policy. Zemene, during her discussion with Rosemary McCarney, UNHCR'S Executive Committee member and Canadian Ambassador to the UN, on joint efforts underway to address the refugee crisis in the region, indicated that Ethiopia has managed to sustain national development together with addressing issues of refugee.

The East African country has registered an additional 54,107 refugees in just the first five months of 2017, according to recent figure by the Ethiopian Administration for Refugees and Returnees Affairs (ARRA). Zemene has also outlined her country's commitment to effectively implement the Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework (CRRF) in collaboration with UNHCR to bring lasting solution to the refugee crisis in the region.

Filippo Grandi, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, during his recent visit to Ethiopia, also praised efforts made by the Ethiopian government in handling the refugee crisis. Grandi, who attended the World Refugee Day commemorative ceremony held in Ethiopia's Gameblla regional state, which hosts majority of the South Sudanese refugees, said "Ethiopia is a very good model of how a country with limited resources and a great challenge of its own keeps its doors open."

25.7.2017        Ethiopia Food Security Outlook, June 2017 to January 2018.

Emergency outcomes likely to persist in southeastern pastoral areas

Key Messages

  • The greatest areas of concern in Ethiopia are in Dollo and Korahe zones in Somali Region where poor households are expected to be in Emergency (IPC Phase 4) through January 2018. Food assistance delivery by both WFP and the Somali Regional Government has been interrupted since mid-May, and if it does not resume by the end of July, some of the worst-affected households are expected to move into Catastrophe (IPC Phase 5) and levels of acute malnutrition and mortality may rise further.
    Following the below-average performance of the Gu/Genna rainy season after the failed previous season, other southeastern pastoral areas are expected to face Crisis (IPC Phase 3) outcomes through at least November due to the poor regeneration of pasture and water resources that have negatively impacted livestock productivity and household income. The forecasted above-average 2017 Deyr rainy season is expected to lead to gradual improvements in livestock body conditions and productivity, improving household food and income access.
  • The 2017 Belg harvests are estimated to be below average in most Belg-producing areas of the country, which will lead to a significant reduction in household food access. Late planting, particularly in lowland areas of SNNPR, has led to a two-month delay in the harvest. Poor households in portions of SNNPR, eastern Oromia, and northeastern Amhara are likely to be in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) through the lean period through the end of September.
  • Pledged and available resources for PSNP and humanitarian assistance, associated with the Ethiopia Humanitarian Requirements Document (HRD), is only expected through the end of June. Although additional funding has been committed to WFP and JEOP, specific funding levels, timing of deliveries, and the number of beneficiaries that will be able to be reached are currently unclear. In Somali Region, where the needs are the highest, the numbers exceed the planned beneficiary amounts, and emergency assistance will be required through at least early 2018. In JEOP operational areas of Oromia, Amhara, Tigray, and SNNPR, the needs for emergency food assistance are expected to decline in October with the Meher harvest.
