Helping people to face climate change in Ethiopia

Helping people to face climate change in Ethiopia

As a result of climate change Ethiopia faces increasing amount and intensity of natural disasters (flooding, extreme droughts, below average rainfall) caused by intensified impacts of El Niño. Consequently, agricultural production is severely affected which have direct impact on livelihoods, nutrition, health, water, sanitation, education and other sectors. Combination of these and other factors are increasing vulnerability of Ethiopian population.  

The major capacity gaps in local NGOs are trained personnel in terms of the development of quality programme, monitoring, putting in place effective preparedness plan, report writing skills and documentation, coordination and networking with humanitarian communities.
