The Food Security Role of Agriculture in Ethiopia

This study analyses income, expenditure and food consumption data in Ethiopia to help explains the country's high probability of national food consumption shortfalls. The study argues that to reach the goal of increased national food security, it is necessary to improve market functioning, invest in infrastructure which reduces food transaction costs, provide incentives for increased production through strong support for producers, and, most importantly of all, reform current land tenure arrangements.
