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 struck by droughts on a regular basis, leading to crop failures and livestock deaths. One cause of the increasingly extreme weather is climate change. The government of Ethiopia is already doing a lot to improve its citizens’ situation, but it cannot meet the enormous challenge alone.
