Humanitarian crises monitoring: Ethiopia’s Tigray region

Non-inquiry session

Report and Government response published

The International Development Committee (IDC) has said that the UK’s response to the deeply concerning humanitarian situation in Ethiopia’s Tigray region will be an early test of the new Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, where it’s combined development and diplomatic strengths can be utilised to end the violence and suffering.

In addition to the immediate response and providing urgent humanitarian assistance, the FCDO should work with donors to create a ‘plan of action’ that will draw on previous humanitarian crises to find a lasting solution for Tigray. In creating the plan, the FCDO must engage local communities to properly learn what is needed on the ground, and it must be properly funded to restore basic services.
