Title : Analyzing impacts of climate variability and changes in Ethiopia


Climate change is a global problem of this century, but its impact is higher in low-income countries like Ethiopia. Subsequently, Ethiopia has been facing severe droughts at least twice per decade and several severe flood hazards. Studies confirm that the country’s annual temperature is increasing by about 0.37 °C. The climate change projection indicated an increase in temperature of 2.2°C and 3.3°C in 2050 and 2090, respectively. The drought between 1900 and 2010 killed over 400,000 people and exposed 54 million others to starvation. In 2004, 2005, 2008, 2016, and 2017, about 8, 6.3, 11.6, 18, and 8.5 million people, respectively, needed food aid. The heavy floods caused a loss of 1.5 billion tons of topsoil, valued at US$106 million. By 2050, climate change will reduce Ethiopia's GDP by 8–10%, and 2.4 million people will become food insecure.
