A farmer sells mangoes just collect on the road to Mekele Wukro. For most of the population of Wukro and surrounding areas, rainfed agriculture is their main subsistence livelihood. However, Wukro and surroundings often suffer droughts that have serious consequences for the living conditions of the rural population. The migration from rural to urban areas during these periods is high. Recently, Wukro is rapidly expanding into the southwest part of the city which is evident in the various residential construction being carried out inside and outside the city. The increase in residential construction and modern commercial buildings such as hotels, cafes and shops, offers revenue opportunities for skilled and unskilled workers in this sector.
