NAIROBI (HAN) November 10, 2015. Public Diplomacy & regional Security. The United Nations has warned that more than 15 million people in Ethiopia will be in need of food aid by the beginning of 2016 because of a severe drought. A lack of rain has meant that crop yields in the worst-affected areas are down by 90% this year.
The Ethiopian government has set aside nearly £130m to deal with the crisis but the UN says a further £330m is needed. Clive Myrie reports from Kobo in northern Ethiopia.
