Famine Food Field Guide

Summary
The reasons to initiate a study on 'wild-food' plants, with an emphasis on 'famine-food' plants by the United Nations Emergencies Unit for Ethiopia (UN-EUE) have a largely practical and pragmatic basis. The initial idea was to document indigenous knowledge on wild-foods and, more particularly, on 'famine-food', to identify and understand better the importance of wild-food plants in the survival strategies adopted by rural people in food insecure areas of the country.
