Oxfam in Ethiopia is an international NGO working on humanitarian and long-term development programs.

Persistent drought conditions caused by climate change has worsened food security levels in the Somali region. The region experienced one of the worst droughts projected as the worst humanitarian  crisis  in  many  parts  of  eastern  African  countries/east  Africa  hunger  crisis.  The drought conditions have resulted in failure of crops, death of livestock due to pasture and water shortages  and  displacements  because  of  increasing  ove rall  food  insecurity  across  the  region particularly and the adjacent Oromia region affecting large part of Ethiopia, Somalia, and Kenya generally.

The  mandated  offices  of  the  agriculture  and  pastoral  development  sector  have  identified potential areas for crop production mainly those close to the river sides as many rivers with a course from the highlands of the adjacent areas in Oromia region passes in the areas targeted.
