With a population of more than 100 million people, Ethiopia is one of the fastest-growing populations and economies in Africa. Ethiopia’s economy depends on agriculture and is home to the largest livestock herds in Africa. Pastoralism, an agricultural way of life built around livestock, provides a livelihood for 12 million in Ethiopia, according to World Bank estimates from 2016.
Despite these challenges, agriculture-led economic growth, accompanied by improvements in people’s livelihoods and nutrition, can provide a long-lasting solution to Ethiopia’s chronic poverty and food insecurity.
