Ethiopia ‑ Complex Emergency Fact Sheet #1 Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 – ReliefWeb

by Zelalem
  • The Government of Ethiopia (GoE) declared a countrywide State of Emergency on
    October 8, following several months of anti-government protests and related insecurity in
    areas of Ethiopia, the UN reports. Humanitarian actors, including the USAID Disaster
    Assistance Response Team (DART), are monitoring potential impacts on relief assistance
    for vulnerable populations, including refugees.

  • The GoE and relief agencies are preparing for the meher assessment, which will assess
    agricultural yields, identify humanitarian needs, and inform the 2017 Humanitarian
    Requirements Document (HRD) appeal for Ethiopia.

  • In early October, the UN World Food Program (WFP) and other response stakeholders
    determined that populations residing in 73 woredas, or districts, had not received adequate
    food assistance in several weeks. Relief food distribution delays are partly due to logistics
    challenges and insecurity.
