Food Aid and Smallholder Agriculture in Ethiopia

Abstract

Ethiopia has been structurally in food deficit since at least 1980. Today, Ethiopia is the world's most food aid dependent country. The country received 795 thousand metric tonnes of food aid annually between 1990 and 1999, about 10% of total domestic grain production. This Briefing asks what have been the impacts of food aid in Ethiopia and what are the implications for future policy, and particularly the links between food aid and smallholder agriculture?
