Worst Drought in Ethiopia in More than 50 Years

The Famine Early Warning Systems Network reported on 4 December 2015 that central and eastern Ethiopia faces the worst drought in more than 50 years.  At least 15 million people are expected to require emergency food assistance in 2016, making Ethiopia the country with the largest acutely food insecure population in the world.  Northern Somali region and southern Afar region are already facing an emergency situation.
