Ethiopia is Africa's oldest independent country and its second largest in terms of population. It is also one of the poorest countries in the world, with 85 percent of its inhabitants depending on agriculture for their livelihood.
The agricultural sector is particularly vulnerable to the adversities of weather and climate since it is rain fed, done using relatively basic technologies, and on tiny plots of land.
BRACED worked with vulnerable communities in high-risk locations in Ethiopia to build resilience to climate extremes so they are able to rebuild and recover when disaster strikes.
