Abstract

This report is based on a 10 days fieldwork mission conducted in Assayta, Afambo and Dubti wereda between February 19th and March 1st 2016. The mission took place within the framework of a wider research project on agricultural transformation and development in Awsa oasis. This text aims at shedding light on the current situation regarding water shortage, its consequences in the three weredas, and the potentially harmful future development of the Tendaho sugar plantation. This preliminary report precedes a deeper ground based analysis and proceeds from a common concern about the current situation of the farmers in time of drought. Then, it aims at documenting local and daily lives of farmers, which remain globally unknown in Addis-Abeba or abroad.
