In Ethiopia more than 12 million people do not have secure access to food. The majority of Ethiopians rely on agriculture to make a living, but much of the already limited farming land is suffering from deforestation and soil erosion. During the dry season the majority of people do not have enough food to eat and without alternative sources of livelihoods many young adults move away in search of work. This year the succession of failed rains means that 10.2 million people are now in desperate need of food assistance.
