Ethiopia Trip

I am going with 3 others - Claire Kirk and Catherine Leeson from CAFOD and Paul Gill, who, like me is a volunteer.
I have many questions that I hope the trip will help answer:
Why do we not seem to be able to crack the root causes of the problems that cause poverty in Countries like Ethiopia?
How can Tigray provence improve it's farming output?
Does the FairTrade system really help Ethiopia's farms and industries- particularly the coffee growers?
What is Ethiopia's debt and what needs to be done to reduce it?
Why is there seemingly futile strife between Ethiopia and its neighbours? This is particularly interesting to me as I am a supporter of projects to help improve life for people in to enter Ethiopia Trip
