ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) – More than 10 million Ethiopians will need food aid in 2016, up from 8.2 million this year, due to the worst drought in decades, the charity Save the Children has said.
Although it has one of the highest growth rates in Africa, Ethiopia’s economy still depends heavily on farming, which employs three quarters of the workforce in the nation of over 90 million people.
Caused by failed spring and summer rains and worsened by the El Nino weather phenomenon, the drought has led to food and water shortages.
About 8.2 million people are expected to have received aid this year, according to the government and the United Nations. The figure could spike to 15 million next year, the U.N. has warned.
