USAID Announces Over $90 Million In Additional Humanitarian Assistance To Ethiopia
USAID Administrator Mark Green met today with Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia. Administrator Green and Prime Minister Desalegn discussed U.S. support for Ethiopia's economic development, drought response, and food security.
Administrator Green noted the Government of Ethiopia's robust response to last year's drought-induced food-security crisis, but expressed concern over deteriorating conditions from a second severe drought this year. Administrator Green encouraged the Ethiopian Government to demonstrate greater leadership and invest more resources to combat a worsening humanitarian crisis. . .
