The stories behind the numbers

Food security in Ethiopia

February 27, 2017 (Addis Ababa, 22 February 2017) Ethiopia generously hosts the second-largest refugee population in Africa: almost 800,000 refugees from neighbouring countries. As a country of origin, transit and destination, Ethiopia has a big responsibility to host refugees and to ensure a better future for potential migrants. The international community joins Ethiopia in a partnership to share the burden.

January 17, 2017 Op woensdag 18/01 en donderdag 19/01 vindt in Ethiopië het jaarlijks “Timkat” festival plaats. Hoewel er geen directe aanwijzingen zijn voor onrust of demonstraties, adviseren wij alle Nederlanders om tijdens het festival grote menigtes te mijden.
