There are about 132 pastoral and agro-pastoral weredas in different regions of Ethiopia. Most of these weredas are located in very remote and marginalized areas of the country. They are characterized by poor social and economic infrastructures and services. Moreover, they are highly vulnerable to both natural and human induced disasters. The total population in these weredas is estimated to be 12-15 % of the country's total population.
