Abstract:Over the past 40 years issues of environment and hunger have received international focus due to wide scale reports of famine and the resulting death of thousands of Ethiopians. Since the mid 1980's, sustainable agricultural development has been tied to the reversal of environmental degradation and the establishment of environmentally sound policies and practices. However, progress has been slow and today environmental degradation is widely reported as being worse rather than better for all the effort expended. This analysis examines these issues through the use of critical hermeneutic theory emphasizing the role of narrative. Theories developed by Ricoeur, Gadamer, Kearney, Wenger and Habermas provide the philosophical foundation for this research project. The research categories of identity, community and legitimation guide this investigation as it seeks to gain understanding of the root issues that have consistently led to top-down imposition of unsustainable and often inappropriate means to address Ethiopia's environmental and food security crisis. Principles of discursive policy formation are offered that could provide hope for productively addressing this stubbornly resistant issue. The research process used in this study follows Herda (1999) protocol for participatory, conversation-based research.
