Famine in the Horn of Africa: What does it mean for Ethiopia?

A lecture on the problem of food insecurity in the Horn of Africa.

The problem of food insecurity in the Horn of Africa will be considered. While most of the media attention has been focused on Somalia, where famine has officially been declared, Ethiopia’s pastoral regions have also been affected. Conditions in these regions, and the possibility that the food insecurity may spread to the highland areas of the country as well, will be looked at. The steps that have been taken to improve food security over the past 25 years, and whether Ethiopia's preparedness for disaster is improved, will be considered.
