The State of Hunger in Ethiopia
Ethiopia faces one of the ten worst food crises in the world. An estimated 5.9 million children under five — about 40% — are stunted, while 1.2 million suffer from acute malnutrition, the deadliest form of hunger.
Communities grapple with severe hunger in large pockets of the vast country, driven by protracted conflict, economic shock, and drought. Instability in bordering countries has also driven a large number of refugees to Ethiopia.
