Many Ethiopians rely on food aid
A report entitled Coping With Hunger And Poverty In Ethiopia has found that many Ethiopians rely on overseas food aid in order to survive and that food supplies are now less reliable than they were in 1984.

Negative consequences of relying on food aid also include "long-term dependency, laziness + reduced self-reliance" and the report suggests that, rather than continue to focus on crisis-managing famines, aid organisations should focus on "strategies for coping with hunger and the links between food insecurity + poverty."
