COUNTRY PROGRAMME ETHIOPIA (2012–2015)

Ethiopie

Titre : COUNTRY PROGRAMME ETHIOPIA (2012–2015)

Pays : Ethiopia

Durée : 2012-2015

Contexte
Ethiopia’s economy has grown substantially over the last five years but the country remains one of the world’s poorest. The scale of food insecurity and malnutrition remains serious, and 23 million people have insufficient income to meet their food needs. Ethiopia is prone to natural disasters, and weather-related shocks have exacerbated food insecurity. At least half of the highlands are degraded, and pastoral areas are over-grazed. Primary school enrolment rates have increased, but high dropout rates persist : 2.8 million children of primary school age, many of them from pastoralist areas, do not attend school.
Food market systems function poorly, with markets unable to shift surpluses to deficit areas. Despite the critical role of women in marketing and agriculture, gender inequality remains widespread and women farmers have limited access to resources and services.
WFP’s programme in Ethiopia is based on its country strategy for 2012–2015 and is in line with the United Nations Development Assistance Framework ; it is designed to support the Government’s growth and transformation agenda. Building on lessons learned, WFP will focus on addressing the causes of vulnerability, focusing on capacity development and enabling hand-over. Food transfers are relevant for addressing food and nutrition security ; they will complement capacity development by providing replicable examples of community approaches for empowering women, girls and people living with HIV and AIDS. WFP will explore cash-based responses where appropriate. Food assistance will reach up to 1.8 million people annually.
Country programme 200253 aims to : i) increase the capacity of Ethiopia’s disaster risk management system ; ii) enhance natural resource management in food-insecure communities and resilience to weather-related shocks ; iii) support access to primary schools ; iv) facilitate access to HIV care, treatment and support ; and v) promote opportunities for livelihood diversification and improved access to food markets.
