    The lives and livelihoods of an estimated one million people in Ethiopia’s Tigray region have been severely disrupted by the recent drought in the north. According to the recent seasonal assessment, 4.5 million people are acutely food insecure, including one million drought-affected people, one million internally displaced people, and 2.5 million host community members/returnees still grappling with the lingering impacts of the conflict. To mitigate the humanitarian and economic impacts of the drought, the Government of the Kingdom of Belgium contributed USD 500 000, through the Special Fund for Emergency and Rehabilitation Activities, to support the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations’ (FAO) emergency response in Tigray. In collaboration with the Tigray Bureau of Agriculture and Natural Resources, FAO will provide agricultural inputs (staple crop seeds) to 4 660 households, with each receiving enough seeds to plant 0.5 hectares during the upcoming main rainy season in late May/June 2024.

    Through the Special Fund for Emergency and Rehabilitation Activities (SFERA), the Government of the Kingdom of Belgium contributed USD 500 000 to FAO to mitigate the adverse impacts of two waves of devastating flash floods (May–June 2022) on the livelihoods and food security of vulnerable farming and fishing households. With Belgium’s generous support, FAO will provide 11 200 flood-affected farming and fishing households (56 000 people) with time-critical production inputs. The planned emergency assistance packages will enable the affected communities to restore their livelihoods, and increase crop and aquaculture production. The Central Emergency Response Fund will complement this project by funding interventions to support the livestock sector. This document provides a brief description of the current context of the intervention and highlights the importance of the contribution in enhancing the resilience of flood-affected communities.
