Food and forests: understanding agriculture and conservation trade-offs in Ethiopia

Phil Franks, Tagel Gebrehiwot

Briefing, 6 pages

In Ethiopia, as in many countries in Africa, policymakers need to better understand and manage the major trade-offs — existing and future — between two competing objectives: increasing agricultural production to meet growing domestic food demand and conserving nature. This briefing explores this issue within the national context in Ethiopia, and makes suggestions for the way forward.
