    Livelihood needs remain high in Ethiopia, where drought induced by El Niño significantly affected the food and income security of farmers and herders across the country in 2015/16. This year, new threats have emerged – including severe drought in southern and southeastern pastoral areas, a growing refugee crisis in Gambella Region and slow recovery among El Niño-affected farmers, especially those in areas where harvests were below average. In 2017, FAO Ethiopia is appealing for USD 20 million to save livestock-based livelihoods, diversify livelihood opportunities for refugees and host community members, support crop production, and strengthen coordination, information and analysis in the agriculture sector.

    Prevailing severe dry weather conditions since October 2016 affected rangelands and crops in southeastern Ethiopia, resulting in serious deterioration of food security conditions. A major area of concern is the Somali Region, where an estimated 2.3 million people require emergency livelihood and food assistance. The critical food security situation reflects a sharply-reduced availability of food, pasture and water, particularly in southern and southeastern pastoral districts. The incoming Oct ober-December rains are forecast at below-average levels, potentially resulting in the third consecutive poor rainy season. Recurrent climate-related shocks have undermined household resilience, and urgent support to agricultural livelihoods is needed.

    New drought is imminent in southeastern regions. The very poor performance of the October to December rains sent shockwaves throughout southern and southeastern pastoral areas of SNNPR, Oromia and Somali Regions and led to widespread scarcity of pasture and water.
