Famine and survival strategies: a case study from northeast Ethiopia



Famine and survival strategies: a case study from northeast Ethiopia



Food and Famine Monograph Series, Institute of Development Research, Addis Ababa University (1): 306



The survival strategies of a peasantry faced with famine, at a time when external assistance was virtually non-existent, are examined. The study is based on structured interviews with peasant household heads, discussions with peasants and peasant leaders, interviews with local officials, and NGO officers and published primary sources relating to Wollo Province. Wollo is placed in its ecological setting and peasant agricultural practices are described.
