ETHIOPIA: Afar food crisis improving but "far from over"
ADDIS ABABA, 18 MARCH 2003 (IRIN) - The food crisis in Afar - one of Ethiopia’s hardest hit regions - is improving, according to the UN’s Emergencies Unit for Ethiopia (EUE). But it warned that the crisis was not over yet.

Afar region – where aid organisations first warned of the current drought emergency which has now affected 11 million people – is gradually emerging from the crisis.
