This report represents the findings from the study that was carried out
between February and April 2011 to assess the Human Dimensions of the
Financial Crisis in Ethiopia. The main objective of the study was to
assess the impact of the Global Financial and Economic Crisis in
Ethiopia from two related dimensions: the economic and the human
dimensions with a particular focus on the International Conference on
Population and Development (ICPD) mandate areas including sexual and
reproductive health (SRH), gender and HIV/AIDS, and data gaps and new
challenges posed by the recent phenomenon of climate change.
The study covered a representative sample drawn from pastoralist areas,
urban centers, emerging regions and the larger regional states of the
country. A total of 1,200 households i.e. proxy to the individuals were
sampled for the study for both the qualitative and quantitative phases.
Particular considerations were made to include the vulnerable groups
especially young girls, women and children, populations living in food
insecure and vulnerable regions, and men and women in urban and rural
