With over 93,000,000 inhabitants, Ethiopia is the most populous landlocked country in the world, as well as the second-most populated nation on the African continent.
Currently, the population growth rate is among the top ten countries in the world. The population is forecast to grow to over 210 million by 2060.
The consumption of vegetables and fruits is relatively limited, largely because of their high cost. Common vegetables include onions, peppers, squash, and a cabbage similar to kale.
Agriculture accounts for almost 41% of the gross domestic product (GDP), 80% of exports, and 80% of the labor force. Production is by small-scale farmers and a large part of commodity exports are provided by the small agricultural cash-crop sector.
