    In the greater Horn of Africa, the vast majority of the population depends on agriculture for its livelihood. Consecutive years of climatic events have increased households’ exposure to risks with limited recovery between shocks. The upsurge of desert locust populations starting in 2019 represented the latest shock to agriculture-dependent households in the region. For communities where food security is already poor and where every gram of food produced counts towards alleviating hunger, the desert locust outbreak presented devastating challenges to food availability. In view of the considerable risk of desert locust damage to the food security of the population in Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) Phase 3 in Ethiopia, FAO sought to support food production capacities and protect livelihoods of the most vulnerable populations for their respective seasons in desert locust-affected areas of Amhara Region, where communities were already facing food insecurity. This project highlights sheet showcases the activities and impacts of the German-funded project OSRO/ETH/007/GER. This is an ex-ante highlights sheet, and will be followed at project completion by an ex-post highlights sheet, showcasing the project's final results. It is intended to demonstrate FAO's positive impact in response to the desert locust crisis with the potential to generate additional resources.
