The Ethiopian government, in collaboration with International Development Partners, is deploying indefatigable efforts to mitigate the effects of the unprecedentedly worst drought that Ethiopia has ever faced over the last 50 years.
Some of the localities in the state of Tigray were bone dried because of the drought. As in other areas touched by the drought, the Ethiopian government has been fairly providing humanitarian and relief aids reaching out the people in need in these affected areas.
Now that the area is drastically recovering from drought by dint of the fair rainfall distribution of the current raining season, moisture and soil conservation works are being made to boost production during the upcoming harvesting season, EBC learnt.
Despite the challenges of rapid population growth and global climate change effects, the economic achievements procured over the last 25 years have proved the Ethiopian government is better-shaped than ever to withstand such natural disasters. Besides, Green Economy Strategy is at the heart of the country's development policy.
