These account for about 15.8% of the country and occur mostly in northern Hararghe, the Danakil lowlands and along the Red Sea coast. Patches are also found in parts of Bale and Hararghe lowlands in the southeast, the lower Omo valley and in parts of northwestern Tigray.

In the northeast, the region consists mostly of recent lava flows with scattered small patches of shrubs and scrub.

In other parts it consists mostly of alluvial fans and depressions and partly of overgrazed areas where the sparse vegetation of scattered scrub and grass allows some browsing and grazing during the rain season.
