#Ethiopia: Nearly 13 million Ethiopians in urgent need of agricultural assistance: #FAO

Millions in Ethiopia are facing a critical food security crisis, with close to 13 million people in dire need of agricultural assistance, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations.

The agency warns of a complex humanitarian situation driven by climate shocks, economic instability, armed conflict, and disruptions to the food supply chain. These challenges are further compounded by limited access to essential food commodities, even in areas with adequate production.

FAO emphasizes the importance of restoring livelihoods in rural areas, where over 80% of Ethiopians live and depend on agriculture for their survival. The organization is urgently requesting $175 million to assist 5.46 million people.
