Good Rains Lead to Better Food Security in Parts of Ethiopia
In Ethiopia, good rains are leading to improved food security. Harvests are expected to be good in the lowlands, including the pastoralist areas of the south and southeast and parts of southern-central and northern-central Ethiopia, said Judith Schuler, a representative of the World Food Program (WFP). “But then in other areas like the southern Somali region, they did not have a lot of rains. The rains have been very poor and the food security situation has deteriorated,” said Schuler.
