 ERITREA : Encyclopedia Entry
Eritrea is officially a parliamentary democracy consisting of six regions, but it functions as a single-party state.
These regions were constantly switching alliances and being wrestled between the Abyssinian kingdoms on one hand and the neighbouring muslim powers of the Nile Valley and Arabia on the other and came to suffer as well as witness many battles between the two forces on their soil.
The southeastern areas of Eritrea were and still are inhabited by the Afar who remained independent from Ethiopia (or Abyssinia as it was then known), until the 16th and 17th centuries when they, as part of the Adal sultanate, were forced to pay tribute to the Abyssinian emperor.

 Special Report: ERITREA - 3 October 2002
Eritrea's agricultural productivity continues to be very low as a result of the country's fragile rainfall regime, its often poor and shallow soils, the use of unsophisticated and labour-intensive cultivation methods, and limited use of agricultural inputs.
Eritrea has a very high incidence of female-headed households, which are often dependent on hired labour to cultivate their land on a share-cropping basis.
For example, in Anseba Region, about 30 percent of the population are pastoralists who generally live in the north and north-west, 20 percent are agro-pastoralists who generally occupy the central areas of the region and 50 percent are farmers who are mainly in the south, which is also densely populated.

 IRC | Drought Recovery in Eritrea
The absence of seasonal rains was felt beyond regions within Eritrea associated with drought and included major agricultural production areas such as Gash Barka and Debub, known as the "bread baskets of Eritrea." Both are the main source of local crop production and the primary destination of refugees returning to Eritrea from Sudan.
IRC programs currently focus on both the normally dry regions where the drought continues and on the bread basket areas, where we are working with selected communities and villages to address the emergency need for seed in Gash Barka and the longer-term need for a safe water supply in Debub.
As a result of Eritrea's prevailing drought, food grain production in Gash Barka was reduced last year to an estimated 70,000 metric tons, only 15 percent of expectations, and farmers could not save enough seed for this year's planting season.
