The Ethiopian population will grow from present


102 to almost 190 million in the next three


decades, out of which 76 million people will live in


cities and towns vis-à-vis 19 million today. Per capita


national income, currently at USD 767 per year, will


almost double by 2050. These changes will trigger


consumption for all livestock products to increase


tremendously: between 2015 and 2050 demand for


milk and beef is estimated to grow by about 5.5


million tonnes and 0.9 million tonnes or 145 and


257 percent increase, respectively, with similar or


higher growth rates for demand of other animal


source foods.
