Transport delays for food aid continue in Ethiopia

Published on 15 July 2009

Transport delays from Djibouti have led the World Food Programme (WFP) to begin diverting vessels carrying food assistance to the Port of Sudan and the Port of Berbera in Somaliland, where trucks will transport the aid to Ethiopia. This decision by the WFP was a result of the Ethiopian Government ostensibly prioritising the transportation of fertilisers from the Port of Djibouti to crop producing areas of the country with the intention of trying to increase production at the next harvest.
