Eradicating Extreme Poverty and Hunger in Ethiopia: A Review of Development Strategies, Achievements, and Challenges in Relation with MDG1

NCCR North-South Dialogue No. 45

by Aklilu Amsalu
Bern, NCCR North-South 2012

Ethiopia was one of the developing countries of the world that adopted the Millennium Declaration in 2000. Since then, the country has entered into a political commitment to introduce appropriate strategies that will help achieve the MDGs. Poverty reduction is one of Ethiopia’s major development challenges. The country developed PRSPs (Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers) in order to deal with extreme poverty and hunger in line with the targets set in the MDGs. However, despite an impressive growth record in recent years, there are doubts about whether the poverty reduction strategies will succeed in leading the country to meet the targets by the end of the MDG period.
