Ethiopia is threatened by droughts time and time again. The famine of 1984/1985, which claimed almost one million lives, is still emblematic of humanitarian disasters today. The country is regularly hit by severe droughts, and the dry seasons lead to crop failures and livestock deaths - one cause of the increasing weather extremes is climate change. Since the end of 2020, an armed conflict has been raging in the Tigray region between the Ethiopian army and the so-called People's Liberation Front (TPLF). Since then, thousands of people have been killed, and several million are dependent on humanitarian aid.
