Japan has contributed 30.2 million dollars to help Ethiopia meet its food needs for communities that have been affected by the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), desert locusts, droughts and floods. The donation, channeled through the National Disaster Risk Management Commission (NDRMC), is expected to address the acute food needs of over 1.6 million people dwelling in the regions of Afar, Amhara, Oromia, Southern Nations, Nationalities & People, and Tigray regional states under the framework of the 2020 Humanitarian Response Plan. The World Food Programme has been handling the procurement, shipment, receipt and overland transport of 72,440tn of wheat to the country under this support from the Japanese government. The wheat will then be forwarded to distribution points by the Commission. The donation was made through the initiative of the Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD), which first took place in 1993 and has since then met seven times.
