Ethiopia - Food Security and Vulnerability in Selected Urban Areas, September 2009

The food security and vulnerability study for urban Ethiopia has largerly been necessiated by the new increased food insecurity stemming largely from the global economic downturn and high food prices, which has been translated to the country partly through high inflation rates. The impact of inflation has been one key element that has resulted in increased food insecurity in urban areas.

The study was conducted in 18 selected urban centres spread across the country, covering eight regions including: Addis Ababa and Dire Dawa cities; Harar townl and selected towns in Tigray, Amhara, Oromiya, Somali and Afar regions.
