Shock-affected populations in targeted areas and refugees in camps are able to meet their basic food and nutrition needs throughout the year (CSP Strategic Outcome 1).

Erwartete Ergebnisse

The Ethiopia CSP focuses on five inter-linked Strategic Outcomes (SO) that contribute to the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2 and 17:

• SO1 is related to emergency preparedness and response.

• SO2 is related to social protection, safety nets and livelihood support.

• SO3 is related to addressing chronic malnutrition and preventing stunting.

• SO4 is related to capacity strengthening of government systems.

• SO5 is related to enhancing global partnerships.

Under SO1, which consists of WFP’s mechanism for responding to sudden changes in political, economic or climatic conditions, WFP will ensure that the immediate life-saving food and nutrition needs of three broad target groups are met:

• Relief: Ethiopians affected by crises including droughts, floods, pests (such as desert locusts), pandemics (such as COVID-19) or conflict-induced displacement (Activity 1);

• Nutrition: Ethiopian children aged 6–59 months and pregnant and lactating women and girls suffering from moderate acute malnutrition (Activity 2); and

• Refugee assistance: Refugees living in camps (Activity 3).



For 2021-2022 under SO1, an estimated total of 7,9 million (in 2021) and 9,6 million (in 2022) beneficiaries are targeted by the relief, nutrition and refugee response, respectively.

With Austria's initial contribution, WFP will assist 88,888 beneficiaries (45,333 women and 43,555 men) of conflict-affected and acutely food-insecure people with life-saving food, including IDPs and host communities. WFP will support with in-kind food assistance to targeted beneficiaries in Tigray in 23 Woredas.

With Austria’s additional contribution, WFP will provide treatment for children with moderate acute malnutrition (MAM) and pregnant and lactating women and girls (PLWGs) with wasting. As per Targeted Supplementary Feeding (TSF) regular operation rate, with the additional contribution of EUR 1 million, WFP can purchase 91 metric tons (MT) of ready-to-use supplementary food (RUSF) and 26 MT of Super Cereal Plus, which is equivalent to a one-month requirement for 34,910 PLWGs and 30,498 children under 5 years of age (51% boys and 49% girls


Activities include:

Provision of unconditional, nutrition-sensitive, in-kind and cash-based food assistance to crisis-affected populations and transitory clients; provision of targeted supplementary feeding for nutritional rehabilitation of vulnerable children and pregnant and lactating women. of the Government of Ethiopia's Productive Safety Net Programme (PSNP).


Ethiopia is facing multiple compounding crises, including drought, conflict, and the COVID-19 pandemic. These crises have a serious impact on the nutrition situation in the country, which has deteriorated in the past few years and is likely to worsen given the persisting multiple hazards. Outside northern Ethiopia, food insecurity in many parts of the country is expected to be one of the main drivers of wasting, by affecting households’ access to nutritionally adequate food. The latest food insecurity projections by the Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWSNET) show that nearly all parts of the country have been affected by drought. The resultant effects include serious shortage of water for both human and livestock consumption, poor state of pasture, substantial crop losses and poorer harvest anticipated. Ultimately these will impact negatively on access to nutritionally adequate diets due to both lack of physical access as a result of non-availability and also increased food commodity prices. Emergency Nutrition Updates produced by the Ethiopia Public Health Institute (EPHI) show the number of Severe Acute Malnutrition (SAM) cases admitted for treatment in 2021 were the highest in the past 10 years. Nutrition screening activities conducted in various parts of the country show a worsening nutrition situation.
