Assessment of Households' Vulnerability to Food Insecurity and Determinant Factors in Developning Countries: The Case of Ethiopia

- Empirical findings show that access to adequate and sufficient food in developing countries is unstable, suggesting that whether a household or individual is food secure at any point in time is best thought of in a dynamic sense.

Concurrently, in most countries in Sub-Saharan Africa in general and in Ethiopia in particular, households’ capacity to manage risks is especially low due to multiple stressors coupled with a poor asset base making them particularly vulnerable to food insecurity....   [tags: poverty policies in Sub-Saharan countries]
