    Ethiopia continues to experience disasters of a serious magnitude, and many people are affected by shocks such as drought and flooding, as well as crop and livestock diseases, conflicts, unstable markets, and other events that result in loss of lives, assets and support systems. The “State of Food Insecurity in the World 2010” 1 lists Ethiopia as one of the 22 countries in the world in a protracted crisis due to periodic natural and human-induced disasters. Protracted crises can become a v icious cycle, posing ongoing and fundamental threats to both lives and livelihoods, from which recovery may become progressively more difficult over time. Finding ways to address the complex nature of protracted crises, therefore, requires coordinated action and a holistic approach to reduce the risks posed by disasters and their impact. Recognising the growing need in Ethiopia to improve and enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of disaster risk management (DRM), FAO is partnering with the Ethiopian Government and relevant stakeholders in placing increased emphasis on DRM programmes. FAO uses the DRM approach to reduce the vulnerability of people before, during and after crisis. A key goal is increasing community resilience to future hazards with actions that are aimed at facilitating the transition from relief to development.
