Ethiopia: two years into the crisis in Northern Ethiopia
Since the conflict broke out in November 2020 in Tigray region between the Ethiopian National Defence Forces (ENDF) and Tigrayan forces, the humanitarian situation in northern Ethiopia has deteriorated and become dire. The escalation of conflict after 24 August 2022 has likely worsened humanitarian needs in Tigray and along its border areas. On 2 November 2022, Tigrayan forces and the Federal Government agreed on a “permanent cessation of hostilities” after talks led by the African Union in South Africa. The joint agreement mentions the restoration of basic services and infrastructure and “collaboration with humanitarian agencies”.
