"1. Introduction 
Action Contre La Faim (ACF) has been working in Sidama Zone, SNNPR since 2003, focusing on nutrition interventions in addition to food security, livelihoods and water, sanitation and hygiene programmes. Child undernutrition continues to be a major public health problem in the Sidama zone of the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Region (SNNPR), an area marked by the paradox of the ‘green hunger’. The area possesses fertile lands, receives rains and is characterised by a good diversity of crops (false banana or enset, maize, barley, vegetables and coffee as a cash crop). Yet, the zone has persistently high levels of global acute malnutrition (GAM) in previous years, which peak during the lean ‘hunger’ season. ACF together with scientific partners, have developed a standardised method for analysing the causes of malnutrition and consequently improving the relevance and effectiveness of stakeholder programming in a given context. Based on its nutrition causal analysis (NCA) approach, in collaboration with National, Regional and Zonal Government and NGO partners, ACF conducted an NCA in the maize livelihood belt of Aleta Chucko and Aleta Wondo woredas from January to May 2014. This report presents the findings from the Nutrition Causal Analysis study."

Trips to Ireland to further his passion for running led to Bedilu Gebreselassie, a member of a political group opposed to Ethiopia’s government, seeking political asylum 

Bedilu Gebreselassie shudders as he recalls the 15 days he spent in prison. “Oh my god, I can’t explain,” the 27-year-old from Ethiopia says, shaking his head as he attempts to describe the cramped conditions of prisoners piled on top of each other in an Addis Ababa jail. Inmates were given a piece of bread and a glass of water to make it through each day. Gebreselassie struggled to find room to sleep on the floor, leaning on his side to fit inside the confined sleeping quarters.

“I was crying, I lost weight, there was no food. After they let me out I had no transportation to get home.”
The sports enthusiast from the city of Hawassa in southern Ethiopia had travelled to the capital to participate in a race with his athletics club but ended up behind bars due to his affiliation with the Sidama Liberation Front political group.
