What Donors Say About Ethiopia: Resilience!

Dear readers,

In a recent interview with Devex, newly appointed USAIDAdministrator Mark Green was asked about reforming the agency (USAID) and the way it provides humanitarian assistance. Administrator Green used the case of Ethiopia as a model of responding to food insecurity. Here is what he said:

One of the stories that we talk about a lot here is Ethiopia. Ethiopia has been struck by natural disaster, drought conditions, but they are in a much better place than they were years ago to be able to respond and to prevent the worst parts of food insecurity. That’s the kind of resilience that I’m really interested in, because I would like us to try to make that a part of our humanitarian approach more broadly. Obviously humanitarian crises don’t hit solely low-income countries. But in particular with lower-income countries that don’t have the capacity, helping them to get there, I think is in their interest — and it’s in our interest.
