Through its programs in Ethiopia, Caritas International works mainly on food security issues.

Ethiopia

About

Although Ethiopia has been undergoing impressive economic development “Double digit” growth, impressive infrastructure improvements (roads, railways and dams for generating hydroelectric power, etc.) and notable achievements in post-secondary education, these improvements have gone hand in hand with extreme poverty and food insecurity among a significant percentage of the population.

Even though the Ethiopian government demonstrated a certain capacity to prevent a catastrophe in its response to the El Niño drought that struck the Horn of Africa in 2015, that same drought also demonstrated the vulnerability of large percentages of the rural population.
