"Food security is a delicate issue in Ethiopia, where 41 percent of a population of 85 million suffers from undernourishment. Although 82 percent of Ethiopians are rural dwellers, and Ethiopia's agricultural labour force stands at 77 percent, malnutrition in both adults and children, as well as poor life expectancy and child mortality rate indicate that food security issues are still being resolved."
