  • Policies and Performance of Ethiopian Cereal Markets (performance)• Consider the following facts: – In 1985, price of kg of teff was 7.7 Birr in Gojjam BUT 15.7 Birr in Wello – In 1974, price of rice in the district of Rangpur in Bangladesh (a deficit area) was almost three times the prices in surplus and well developed districts• What is common in these two cases? – Both countries had famines: Ethiopia in 1984/5 and Bangladesh in 1974. – Hard hit famine areas lacked integration with the surplus and well developed regions. – In both countries there were restrictions on grain movements 29

  • Livestock Production and Marketing• Importance of livestock in Ethiopian economy • At the national level : • Livestock subsector accounted for 11% of GDP and 24 % of agricultural GDP during 1995/96 to 2005/06 • Annual export earning from livestock / livestock products averaged 13% of the national export earnings • If unofficial export is included, livestock’s share in total export earning would have been about 25%!! • At the household level: • Livestock subsector is important in the livelihood of all types of rural households in all agro-ecological zones • It plays an important role in coping with shocks, accumulating wealth, and as store of value in the absence of missing markets and institutions. • Potential future demand: • With economic growth and regional integration, demand is likely to grow 33

  • Disaster Response and Emergency Risk Management Implications• Food aid flow to the 16 country is declining, but: 14 • Food aid flow to Ethiopia has 12 declined considerably in 10 recent years 8 • However, food aid has played 6 significant roles in the years of droughts /other shocks. 4 • This was the case in 1999- 2 2000 and then again in 0 2002/03, when the country 1998 2005 1996 1997 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2006 2007 2008 was hit by severe droughts.

  • Patterns in Foodgrain Consumption and Calorie Intake• General• Food consumption patterns are diverse in Ethiopia • no dominant staple in the national diet; • location, culture, and incomes matter;• Some features • Teff is consumed much more frequently in urban areas • Enset, maize, and sorghum are predominantly rural • Afar, Somale, Harari, and SNNPR consume the lowest amounts of cereals.
  • Patterns in Foodgrain Consumption and Calorie Intake• Calories• Calorie consumption across Ethiopia is low;• A high percentage of calorie consumption is coming from cereals;• Per capita intake of calories varies: • across rural and urban areas; • across regions; • across agro-ecological area; • Across socioeconomic groups.
  • Patterns in Foodgrain Consumption and Calorie IntakeExpenditure Shares• Food expenditures’ share in total expenditures remains fairly high, but has been declining over time;• The proportion of income spent on (raw) cereals is high, and that of processed cereals and non-cereal food is low;Changes• Calorie consumption is growing in Ethiopia – 1995/96 – 2004/05• Case of TeffImplications• Inter-sectoral linkages

  • Targeting Food Security Interventions inEthiopia: The Productive Safety Net ProgrammeThe PSNP is targeted towards households that are both food insecureand poor, in terms of total household resources.PSNP-PW: • targeted the poor for participation, rather than food insecure households per se; • poverty is highly correlated with food insecurity - food insecure households were targeted as a consequence;Increasing community understanding of targeting criteria: • households’ identification of poverty-related factors as a reason why households are selected for public works improved; • growing understanding that the elderly and disabled are the intended recipients of direct support; • family or friendship connections were not reported as major factors affecting a household’s likelihood to receive PW or DS 48
  • Targeting Food Security Interventions inEthiopia: The Productive Safety Net Programme • the PSNP is well-targeted: • progressive; • better targeted than the average global safety net program; • better targeted than any of the African safety net programs reported in Coady, Grosh and Hoddinott (2004). • These findings suggest that: • the PSNP has been able to target resources to the poorest households in rural areas using a combination of geographic and community-based targeting. • the need for continuous capacity building and follow-up from higher level implementers. 49
  • Implications of Accelerated Agricultural Growthfor Household Incomes and Poverty in Ethiopia: A General Equilibrium AnalysisEDRI Social Accounting Matrix 2004/05 • Constructed as part of a project with the University of Sussex (w/support of IFPRI-ESSP2) • 69 production sectors (24 agricultural, 14 agricultural processing, 20 other industry, 11 services) • Regional SAM based on the “3 Ethiopias” • Rainfall sufficient, drought prone, pastoralist • Rainfall sufficient AEZ disaggregated to humid lowlands, enset-based systems, and other (highland) rainfall sufficient areas • Poor and non-poor groups in rural and urban areas
  • Agro-ecological Zones “Three” Ethiopias
  • Baseline Scenario Assumptions• Agriculture • Land cultivated for each crop follows medium-term trends: total land cultivated increases 2.6% per year, 2009-2015 • Land growth varies across region (1.2% per year in rainfall sufficient areas, 3.2% per year in drought-prone areas, 3.7% per year in pastoralist areas) • Crop yield increases account for one-third of the crop production growth • Overall agricultural GDP growth: 3.8%/year • Note: population growth rate is 3.0 percent/year• Non-agricultural output growth based on historical medium-term trends: • Manufacturing: 8.1% per year • Services: 8.1% per year

  • SimulatedAgricultural Growth Outcomes
  • Simulated Poverty Outcomes
  • Model Conclusions• The simulations indicate that agricultural growth does have significant poverty-reducing effects. – This indicates that the overall Agriculture Development-Led Industrialization (ADLI) strategy, as well as the basic CAADP and AGP programs, are sound approaches• Complementary non-agricultural growth (in addition to agricultural growth linkages) can have a marginal impact on poverty equal in size to that of accelerated agricultural growth
  • The Evolving Role of Agriculture in Ethiopia’s Economic Development• Ethiopia is changing at an accelerating pace • Road networks, telecommunications, electricity generation, urbanization• Large-scale public investments in agriculture in 1990s and 2000s • Strong evidence that agricultural production has increased (independent ERHS surveys; stable real prices in context of increased incomes, population)• Substantial economic growth and reductions in malnutrition• To a large extent, the evidence suggests that Agriculture Development Led Industrialization (ADLI) adopted in the late 1990s succeeded 57
  • The Evolving Role of Agriculture in Ethiopia’s Economic Development• However, there are increasing concerns about reliance on agriculture as a major source of growth in the future • Land and water constraints in the highlands and drought- prone areas • Without continued growth in non-agricultural sectors, there may be insufficient demand for any increased supply of agricultural products • Urbanization and the normal structural shift in production from agriculture to industry and services will require public and private investments in non-agricultural capital 58
  • Major Challenges for Agricultural and Food Policy• Sustaining Growth in Crop and Livestock Production • Public and private Investments in productivity-increasing technologies are needed • Problems in seed multiplication and distribution must be overcome • Chemical fertilizer use must increase• Increasing Market Efficiency • Large increase in domestic demand for marketed staple foods • Promote competition in markets, especially for imported products (e.g. fertilizer) and allow private sector to compete with cooperatives• Providing Effective Safety Nets • PSNP has proven successful in targeting the poor with cash and food transfers; complementary programs to build household assets and sustainable livelihoods are essential • Strengthen a decentralized response system to emergencies to improve timeliness of response to serious hunger threats • Allow private sector imports to supplement domestic supplies in times of shortage 59
  • Major Challenges for Agricultural and Food Policy• Maintaining Macroeconomic Incentives and Stability • Rapid overall domestic inflation from 2007 to 2009 reduced food security, especially for urban households with fixed or slowly adjusting salaries • Appreciation of the real exchange rate worsened incentives for production of tradable goods (including export crops) • Incentives were largely restored through sharp restrictions on domestic credit in 2009 and other measures that reduced inflation, and the September 2010 devaluation of the Birr • Macroeconomic stability will be crucial for growth and poverty reduction• Managing the Rural-Urban Transformation • Urbanization rates remain low (less than 20 percent) in spite of recent increases • Measures that facilitate sale of land or avoid loss of land rights for those who migrate could accelerate rural-urban migration • Achieving an appropriate balance of rural and urban public investments can facilitate both economic growth and overall poverty reduction 60
  • Conclusions• Ethiopia has made enormous progress in food security and poverty reduction since the famines of the 1970s and 1980s• Significant variations in agro-ecology, population densities and infrastructure make Ethiopia’s agricultural and food economy complex and necessitate a regional approach to agricultural development and food security• Continued progress will require both public and private investments and appropriate agricultural and economic policies that provide incentives for adoption of technology, enhance market efficiency and provide effective safety nets 61
