Famine and survival strategies: a case study from northeast Ethiopia
The Nordic Africa Institute.
1991 (English)Book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This study importantly changes the focus to what happens before a famine comes, and how the peasants prepare for it. Paradoxically, the author concludes that it is in the years of recovery that the seeds of famine are sown. The study revolves around a case study in the awraja (district) in the Ambassel Wollo province in northeastern Ethiopia. The author also critically examines other literature on famine response.
