Recently, the applications of early warning programs in Africa have received support from international organizations. The Famine Early Warning System and the Crisis Mitigation Project of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is specifically targeted to address the plight of pastoralists in the Greater Horn of Africa. The program is designed to focus attention on problems of monitoring emerging famine situations and gaining a better understanding of the famine. Developing multi-scale early warning systems is the primary objective of this regional program. This paper looks into the Regional Livestock Early Warning System Project, and discusses the contribution and role of Ethiopia.
