Summary: 

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.
