  • Over 80% of Eritreans are engaged in subsistence farming and the government has made substantive efforts in improving food production. However, food sustainability remains a major problem for the country. With good rains the country can produce up to 60% of its food requirements, with bad rains the productivity can decrease to as low as 25% of national food requirements.
