Ethiopia and the United States signed an agreement to invest in food security, build resilience and accelerate economic growth in Ethiopia. The program will fall under the leadership of the US’s five-year “Feed the Future” strategy. Omer Hussein, minister of Agriculture, and Bonnie Glick, deputy administrator of United State Agency for International Development, signed the agreement. USAID has allocated 300 million dollars for the next two years as part of the agreement. “This partnership agreement may bring new and innovative solutions for the challenges Ethiopia faces,” Glick said. Feed the Future is the US’s global hunger and food security initiative to improve productivity and commercialisation, resilience and protection from shocks and disasters. Over the past five years, the US has invested four billion dollars in Ethiopia in development and humanitarian assistance.
