Ethiopia’s development results

Ethiopia has a population of nearly 70 million people, of which some 45 percent are below 15 years of age. It is a multi-lingual and ethnically diverse society with many different types of agro-ecological and climatic conditions. During the last half-century, Ethiopia has experienced periods of economic and social progress, only to be set back again by war, internal upheaval, drought and famine. Opportunities for the poor to change their living conditions continue to be limited by a high rate of population growth, rapid soil erosion and increasingly, HIV/AIDS.
