The hallmark of Ethiopian urbanization is the critical role played by the large number of emerging towns spread over the vast rural landscape where the greatest part of the Ethiopian population resides. Amdework is one of these towns. Transforming the huge potential of emerging towns for sustainable development into reality requires diagnostic, analytical, and planning capacities. These have to be inclusive, spatially specific, and systemic. Dedicated to this endeavor, this book assembles cartographic, narrative-based, and metabolic approaches in a participatory and stakeholder-engaged way. The authors construct a profile that reveals a broader geographic view of the processes that underpin the functioning, growth, and development of Amdework.
