AO highlights enhanced partnership
to end hunger in Ethiopia by 2025

ADDIS ABABA, (Xinhua) – The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has highlighted enhanced partnerships with the Ethiopian government and other stakeholders to support the country’ s effort to end hunger by 2025 or even before.   

This came on Friday at a workshop organized in Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa to deliberate on ways of further strengthening Ethiopia’s activities to realize regional and international goals and commitments towards ending hunger and poverty from the country.

FAO on 30 Nov. 2014 recognized and awarded the East African country for its outstanding progress in fighting hunger at a ceremony held in Rome, Italy.

The Ethiopian Ministry of Agriculture (MoA) and FAO jointly organized the one-day workshop primarily to dwell upon a study/ exercise conducted to review Ethiopia’s strategies, policies, programs and investment plans in the areas of food security, nutrition and social protection. 

With various activities and mechanisms including the Africa Solidarity Trust Fund initiative, FAO has been working in partnership with African countries to strengthen food security across the continent by assisting countries and their regional organizations in efforts to eradicate hunger and malnutrition, eliminate rural poverty and manage natural resources in a sustainable manner.

The workshop also featured the official project launch of the Africa Solidarity Trust Fund, whereby Ethiopia is benefiting two million U.S. dollars to stimulate policy dialogue towards ending hunger and eradicating poverty in the country.

“This workshop has been organized to share the highlights of the key findings of the review/mapping exercise and stimulate action towards enhanced partnership to end hunger in Ethiopia by 2025,” said Susan Minae, FAO Coordinator for Eastern Africa

Officially opening the workshop, Mitiku Kassa, Ethiopian State Minister of Agriculture, noted that his country has been working with its people and partners to achieve a middle-income economy status by 2025.
