Afar Revenues Authorities Report 1.5b Br Collected

Tax officials in the Afar Regional State say they have collected 1.5 billion Br in revenues over the past nine months. It represents a growth of over 300 million Br compared to the same period last year, despite the region becoming increasingly embroiled in the armed conflict gripping the country's north over the past few months. Over 240 schools remain closed in the region, keeping more than 53,000 children from attending classes, according to a report by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UN-OCHA). The agency has identified more than 600,000 people in the region who are in need of food assistance, though its report states that a lack of transportation remains a critical gap in addressing the problem.
