Especially Tigray is affected by drought. In 1994 the Agricultural Development-Led Industrialization (ADLI) strategy was adapted for securing food and restoring agricultural productivity. Since then the landscape of Tigray has drastically changed for the better: the erosion and desertation significantly decreased.
But not only Tigray is affected. Approximately 135 Million people are threatened by the drought. Last century there were more people killed by the drought than any other natural disaster. That’s why it’s so important for countries and regions like Tigray to have measures and laws that help to achieve the goal of the United Nations for sustainable development.
