World Humanitarian Summit To Examine Aid Reform For Hunger Emergencies In Ethiopia, Other Vulnerable Nations

Thomson Reuters Foundation: Can aid reform end Ethiopia’s repeated hunger emergencies?
“…Millions of farmers and herders across Africa have been pushed into crisis by drought this year, raising questions about the ability of aid to break the hunger cycle, despite a resolve to do so after famine killed 260,000 people in Somalia in 2011. How to make people less vulnerable to natural disasters, and improving the aid response when they do strike, are key themes of the World Humanitarian Summit on May 23-24 in Istanbul…” (Migiro, 5/4).
