While continuing to battle residual needs from the 2015/2016 El Niño-induced drought, below average 2016 autumn rains in the southern and southeastern parts of Ethiopia have led to a new drought in lowland pastoralist areas, as well as in pocket areas across the country. As a result, some 5.6 million people in Ethiopia require emergency food assistance in 2017.
The Emergency Telecommunications Cluster (ETC) is not currently active in Ethiopia in response to the drought, however it is closely monitoring the situation in collaboration with its partners. Partners involved in the ICT response are invited to share information with the ETC network through Global.ETC@wfp.org.
