The Ethiopian Food Security Programme consists of three components: the Productive Safety Net Programme (PSNP), the Other Food Security Programme and a programme of resettlement.
The Department for International Development (DFID) has supported the PSNP since 2005. Since then, DFID has facilitated assessments of both the Food Security Programme and the PSNP. DFID has also supported the dissemination of lessons learned from PSNP to Southern African countries.
Since 2005, DFID has disbursed £92 million in support of the PSNP. These funds have been provided directly to the Government of Ethiopia.
DFID does not support the other components of the Food Security Programme.
