  • El Niño in Ethiopia:Testing the lessons of El Niño past : - The past year has been tough for Ethiopia. The country faced it’s worst drought in 50 years. First the spring (belg) rains in 2015 failed, drastically diminishing planting and livestock production across the country. By the time El Niño arrived in June 2015, the summer (kiremt) rains, which supply much of the country’s harvest and potable water, were also severely reduced. Poor rainfall increased food insecurity and malnutrition and devastated livelihoods across the country. In October 2015 World Vision declared Category III (CAT III) response with an appeal of $22m to fund emergency, WASH, Health and Nutrition, Education and Child Protection, General Food Distribution and Food Security/ livelihood protection programmes. As the number of people affected grew over subsequent months, the appeal was revised to $38m and $48m in February and April 2016 respectively. By September, $43 million (cash and food value) has been secured from various donors, benefitting over 2.6 million people. Download
