Crop Availability and Market Analysis in Ethiopia: Analyzing Crop Production, Availability and Market Functions for 2016/2017 and Estimations for 2017/2018

Speeches Shim

Prior to the approval of a proposed U.S. food aid program in a recipient country, the United States Government (USG) must make a positive “Bellmon Determination.” USAID/Ethiopia has commissioned in-depth Bellmon Analyses to Social Impact, implementing the Ethiopia Performance Monitoring and Evaluation Service. The purpose of the analysis was to determine that any direct cash transfer and distribution of U.S. agricultural commodities provided for use in Ethiopia during FY18 through Title II meet the criteria set forth in the Bellmon Amendment. The report examines food availability and demand in the country and potential impact of food distribution on the local markets in Oromia, Amhara, Southern Nations, Nationalities and People’s (SNNP), Tigray regions and Dire Dawa city administration.
