ABSTRACT There are many factors that hinder the economic development of Ethiopia. Among multifactors that hampered the economic development of the country are severe soil erosion and low agricultural production and productivity. Hence, a study of assessments of soil erosion and its conservation practices conducted in the Adea worda was attempted in response of these complex issues. Accordingly, to assess the problems and come up with the matching solutions, both the primary and secondary data were collected. The study was carried out with the sample households of 231 from the total households of 2,310 that in turn from three Kebele Administrations by simple random sampling technique were selected. The data from interviews, targeted focus group discussion, and personal field observation were also collected to substantiate the study. The collected date were coded, organized, tabulated, analyzed, and discussed. The findings of the study revealed that the main causes of soil erosion are heavy rainfall of the summer season, over cultivation, over grazing, cultivation of the steep slope, and deforestation. These causes of soil erosion are also become the strong challenging factors that affect SWC practices. The findings of the study also revealed the prominent types of erosion are gully erosion, perennial stream channels erosion, and rill erosion formations. The findings of the study also indicated that the traditional hill side terracing and tree planting are the principal SWC measures practiced in the survey area. The findings of the study also have shown that the need of the intervention of the government and environmental protection sectors and all stakeholders should have to take in to account to bring the fundamental change in green development strategy. Particularly, by giving attention to the technical and financial support for the most degraded areas under the attentive supervision of the concerned bodies and development agents in the sites. Rather than depending totally on the natural resources for the daily livelihood, creating some other alternatives and means of income generation is also very essential in the area.

Now a days, land degradation has emerged as a significant threat to the promotion of green economy, wellbeing of the ecology and ensuring food security. To counteract such a problem, Scaling up SLM technologies is a drastic solution. It is with this grand theme that this study was conducted in Tehuledere Woreda in three surrounding districts (Amumo, Kundimeda and Messal) taking the vulnerability of the area in to consideration. It shade light at identifying the factors hindering the adoption of SLM technologies and, the role of SLM technologies to ensure food security, and assessing the causes of food security in the context of SLM in the study area. The data used were obtained from both primary and secondary sources. The primary sources include structured questionnaire survey and focus group discussion methods. A total of 193 households were interviewed and their responses were interpreted. Scientific reports and conference proceedings were used to support the primary data. Descriptive statistics method was used for analyzing among farm land size, household, topography, erosion status and the adoption of soil and water conservation practices. The results indicated that farm land size, educational status of household head, slop of the farm land, lack of awareness, lack of adequate rain fall, financial constraints and distance to the farm plot from household home were among the major factors that negatively influence adoption of SLM in the study area which resulted in food insecurity. Furthermore, applying cost effective technologies which are suited for different topography such as manure, stone bundles, check dams, planting trees, etc. are recommended to be adopted effectively to ensure food security. Finally, lack of rainfall, land degradation and soil erosion, small land size, and limited status of SLM technologies are found to be causes of food insecurity in the context of SLM. As land is the main stay of the life in rural areas, efforts should be exerted for successfully scaling up of SLM technologies.

A watershed is defined as any surface area from which runoff resulting from rainfall is collected and drained through a common confluence point. Now a day's, with the increasing population watershed degradation is a serious problem in developing countries like Ethiopia. Amhara Regional state is potential for agricultural production for the country. The region is now affected by land degradation. Antsokiya Gemiza is one of the potential woreda in the North Shewa Zone but the woreda is now become under immense threat of agricultural productivity reduction. Land degradation is the main cause of decline in productivity of land, low income of the people. Natural resource depletion by sever soil erosion and environmental mishaps eroded the confidence of farmers living in the high rainfall and productive regions. Antsokiya Gemiza woreda is one of those areas considered as agricultural potential areas. For sustainably develop this high agricultural potential and labor available area, priority should be given to natural resources, especially soil and water conservation, based and economically feasible development projects. For that matter, investment on irrigation projects will increase crop production and reduce natural hazard risks. Therefore, construction of small-scale irrigation project is significantly important for the area. Bishano small-scale irrigation project watershed is found in Antsokiya Gemiza wereda of North Shewa Zones of Amhara Regional State. Land degradation assessment study carried out at Bishano watershed at Antsokia Gemiza woreda in Amhara Regional State. The study has to assess land characteristics related to land degradation for watershed management project study. The study was based on overlay of soil geomorphology; climatic, present lands cover processed in Arc.GIS 9.3 environments and analyze physical land resources, social implications and economic benefits. The general objective of the Bishano intake irrigation watershed management plan study is to identify, understand ecological and socio-economic problems in the watershed and prepare the watershed intervention plan that enable sustainable management and use of resource; there by establishing long-lasting irrigation water supply system while improving livelihood of the communities in the watershed through creating and sustaining improved agricultural production systems and land productivity. The methodology employed includes collection of primary and secondary data at field level .The study approaches and procedures exercised during different stages of the study include pre-field work, fieldwork, and post fieldwork activities. Bishano irrigation project watershed, has an area of 1489.05 ha is located in Amhara National Regional State North Shewa zone Antsokiya Gemiza and Menz Mama Midr weredas. The watershed has an altitudinal range from 1763 to 3096 m.a.s.l. The Watershed has only one dry weathered feeder road join from kebele to woreda town. Four types of soils have been identified in the watershed namely: Eutric Cambisol, Eutric Regosols, Lithosols and rock surface. The dominant textures identified in this watershed are loam, clay loam and clay. All types of slopes are present in the watershed. It has about 1018.2mm/yr annual rainfall. The annual average maximum temperature is estimated at 28.65oC. The total population of watershed is about 14,287 in number. The farming system comprises field crop production, livestock rearing and tree growing. The major crop types cultivated in the watershed are Teff, sorghum and maize. The dominant trees grown in the watershed include Cordia Africana, Ficus Spps and Eucalyptus. Soil degradation is decline of organic matter, depletion of nutrient, salinization and drying up of rivers and lakes .The common type of erosion is water erosion exhibited with all forms of erosion such as sheet and rills, gully, stream bank and land sliding on very steep slope areas. To assess soil erosion hazard for project area the revised universal soil loss equation (RUSLE) approach was followed. The land degradation map was developed on Arc GIS environment by using RUSLE parameters (rainfall erosivity; soil erodibility; slope length and gradient; land cover; and land management practices) as an input to assess average annual soil loss rate of the area. Based on the analysis, the total amount of soil loss in the watershed is about 25.3 ton/ha/year in mountains and hilly areas and 0.52 ton/ha/yr at flat and level areas where deposition takes place, the mean annual soil loss is 6.86 tons/ha/yr. From the assessment, 45.08% of the area has soil loss below the mean value. About 91.58 % of the area non-to slight and 8.42% moderate soil loss class. In order to alleviate the problems, the study identified and presented different mitigation measures in the main body of the report.

ABSTRACT This paper assessed the spatiotemporal analysis of recent land use and land cover changes of Goro District, South west shewa, central Ethiopia. This study was aimed at to map and quantify Land-use/Land-cover change and spatiotemporal analysis of Goro district between 1995 and2015. Integrated Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographical Information System (GIS) techniques were effectively applied for analyzing the magnitude, rate, and spatial pattern of land use change The Land-use/Land-cover and urban expansion dynamics of the town was the result of remotely sensed multi-temporal satellite imageries interpretation traced back to 1995, 2005 and 2015. Land-use/Land-cover area changes detection of land cover classes comparison between each study period was computed. The supervised image classification method with maximum likelihood probability algorithm has been employed for the land -cover classification in ENVI4.7 software. Four land use and land cover maps were produced by analyzing multi temporal remotely sensed images of three dates from Landsat satellite imageries and shows the major land use and land cover types. These include forest, shrub or bush, grass and agricultural land. In between (1995 to 2015), there was a dramatic expansion of grassland followed by forest however; shrub and farm land shows a reduction in aerial coverage. On the other hand in between 2005 to 2015, the inverse is true for agricultural land and shrub land shows a dramatic expansion but grass and forest land shows a reduction in the aerial coverage. The human driving factors include Population growth and density, over intensification of land use, farm size and policies on land use. The other driving forces for these changes were natural factors such as drought and Climate change. These factors results in various forces and strong effect to change the quantity and quality of land use. Keywords: Land Use/Land Cover classes; GIS; Remote sensing; spatiotemporal; Ethiopia

The study was conducted with the aim of investigating the level of female headed household farmers' participation in teff production and Soil and Water Conservation practices on teff farm plot and determinates of their participation in teff production of Abeshege woreda, SNNP, Ethiopia. A random sampling method was employed to select 164 participant and 70 non-participant households from purposively selected six Rural Kebeles sample respondents. Data were collected from both primary and secondary sources using interview schedule, focus group discussion, semi-structured interview, key informant discussions, and observations. The study employed both quantitative and qualitative data. The quantitative data were analyzed and interpreted by using descriptive statistics such as mean, range, percentage, standard deviation, t-test, chi-square and frequencies in order to draw conclusions and generalizations. The qualitative data were also analyzed and described by using qualitative methods such as narration, and generalizations. The study also employed the probit econometric model as a component of inferential statistical analysis. The study revealed that, there was a variation in the level of participation of female headed household in teff production in the study area. Further, the results of the study showed that 7.5% of the sampled respondents were under the category of low participation, 14.9% were under medium level of participation category and 62.7% of the respondents were under high participation category. The study showed that female headed household contribute 37.4% of labor for teff production and 41.6% of female headed house hold participants had a very good level of participation on soil and water conservation practices on teff producing farm plots. The estimation of the probit analysis revealed that size of family(X4), land size (X5), Average annual income (X6), and contact with development agents (X8) are significant at 1% probability levels. The implication of finding is that an increase in the level of any of the explanatory variables with positive sign i.e. in the case of marital status (X2), education level (X3), size of house hold members(X4), land size(X5) and contact with development agents(X8) have a positive effect on the participation of female headed household in teff production in the study area. According to this finding concerned body should give attention to those significant variables with care and design a better teff production strategy focusing on effective supervision, and training to enhance the female headed farmers' participation in teff production.

Land degradation is one of the major challenges in agricultural production in many parts of the world, especially in developing countries like Ethiopia. This is despite the efforts to curb land degradation rates through the years, including the attempt to promote soil and water conservation (SWC) technologies. This study investigates the factors affecting adoption and intensity of use decision for SWC practices in the Ethiopian highlands, in Tigray regional state. Data analysis was done using cross-sectional data collected from 150 households possessing 409 plots. In addition, secondary data was collected from relevant sources such as the woreda office of agriculture and rural development. Descriptive statistics such as mean and percentage were used to describe socio-economic and institutional characteristics of sample respondents. In addition, a double-hurdle model was used to identify the factors that influence farmers’ adoption decision and use intensity of SWC technologies, with a particular focus on stone terraces and soil bunds. The results suggest that the decision to adopt SWC practices and intensity of use appears to be explained by different processes. Slope and distance of the plot from residence seem to have a similar effect on both adoption and intensity of adoption decisions. Adoption decision is determined by age of the household head, extension, perception of soil erosion, perceived profitability of the technology, availability of food-for-work in the village, tenure security, slope and distance of the plot. While the decision made on intensity of use of SWC practices is influenced by membership to organization, farm size, land to labor ratio, slope and distance of the plot from residence. Therefore, bringing major changes in soil and water conservation investments will require attention to all the above factors. Since some of these factors such as farm size, extension and tenure security can be directly influenced by government policies and programs, government policies should pay due attention on measures to improve the quality of extension service and tenure security enhancement to increase adoption of land conserving technologies and minimize the rate of land degradation. Key words: Adoption, SWC, Double hurdle model

Sustainable agricultural practices (SAPs) is a pooled of practices that increase productivity while conserving soil, which put on firm foundation of zero tillage, use of manure, legume intercropping and legume crop rotation. Despite use of SAPs is a panacea for aggravated soil erosion and nutrient depletion and maximizing crop produce, but it seems a plateau for farmers in Dangila district. This study, therefore, assessed factors that affecting of farmers decision behavior of implementing SAPs in Amhara region. The multistage sampling procedure was used to identify kebeles and sample respondents. Mixed nature of data were collected from sample respondents. Both descriptive statistics and Binary logit model was employed. The result of this study indicates that executing of SAPs is the aggregate of many factors, which should be given due attention in the transformation agriculture to environmentally friendly technologies and climate smart agricultural practice.

The thesis describes the major factors contributing to the shrinkage of pastoralist resources in the Ethiopian Lakes Region and the process of transformation of traditional pastoralism. It investigates the impacts of external interventions on local community in relation to management of natural resources and how communities dynamically respond. It also identifies the role of local community and their institutions regarding resource and conflict management. In this research both primary and secondary data are used. Qualitative data was collected from different rural and urban areas of the Lakes Region from key informants and through in-depth interview. For analytical purpose, quantitative data about rainfall and temperature characteristics and trend is also incorporated from secondary sources. Other secondary sources such as census and research reports are also used regarding population growth, urbanization, and land use pattern and investment trend. The role of traditional pastoralism, once the dominant economy in the Ethiopian Lakes Region is declining due to the shrinkage of pastoralist resources. Internal dynamics and external interventions have forced the pastoralists to transform their livelihood. Political and institutional shocks at macro level, environmental degradation, declining role of traditional institutions, rapid urbanization, population growth, national parks, private and state farms and floriculture and horticulture industry are contributing for further shrinkage of resources. In the meantime the pastoralists and agro-pastoralists economy is undergoing several transformations. Sedentarization, privatization, intensification and diversification became pervasive phenomenon. In a struggle to maintain survival need as a pastoralist, the pastoralists of the Lakes Region are losers, while in innovatively adapting to the external and internal stimulus they are winners in appropriating their share of life sustaining resources. This strategy has supported the continuation and proliferation of triangular transhumance. As a result there is a continuous organization and reorganization of relationships within the communities settling in the Lakes Region.

Abstract This study was conducted at Gido sub-microwatershed which is located in south Welo and a typical example of the ‘Woina dega’ agro-climatic classification system of Ethiopia. The main objectives of the survey was to assess crop yield and land management variation among the different capability units, to examine and evaluate the biophysical characteristics and to explain variation in crop yield based on the biophysical characteristics and land management practices. Data were collected during the field survey from November to December 2003.The two most widely cultivated crops i.e. teff and sorghum were considered for investigation. The findings indicates that the average teff yield (11.92qt/ha) on capability unit C1was found to be 27.6, 39.2, 45.5, and 47.6 percent greater than the average teff yield on capability units C2, C3, C/P and C4 respectively. Again the average sorghum yield on capability unit C1 (30.58 qt/ha) was almost 33, 46, 69 and 63.2 percent higher than the yield of capability units C2, C3, C/P and C4 respectively. Concerning about the effect of land management on crop yield, the findings show that, as the capability unit increases from C1 to C4 the variety of land management increases progressively. This indicates that crop cultivation in the marginal areas of the watershed was sustained because of the effectiveness of indigenous land management. However the effect of land management on crop yield variation was insignificant in capability unit C1, but on capability units of C2, C3 and C/P where a number of land management types were available their effect were significant. The study also sought to measure the effects of some pertinent variables such as slope, soil depth, soil depth/slope ratio, organic matter, total nitrogen, and available phosphorous and C/N ratio. However the only variables which were significantly correlated with sorghum crop yield were slope, soil depth/slope ratio, organic matter and total nitrogen. The result of the analysis pointed out some important implications regarding the agricultural production and in order to increase yield in the study area. Farmers and land managers stand to gain by paying attention to the recommended types of conservation measures, such as broad and narrow based terracing, and hillside ditching, for each capability units and to integrate them with the indigenous conservation measures. It is recommended that a type of conservation measures which integrates “Weber” and “Kirit”. However it is important to understand the linkages within the watershed, and how conservation farming in the uplands of the southern part of the watershed system affects the system as a whole and the decision making process of both the upper catchment farmers and downstream residents. Thus regional and national as well as international assistance is needed to restore, manage and conserve this endangered cropland to the benefit of both upstream and downstream communities, as well as the natural ecosystem.

Soil degradation is a global environmental problem which started since the innovation of agriculture by human kind. One third of the world's agricultural soils, or roughly 2 billion hectares of land, was reported as being affected by soil degradation. Water and wind erosion account for 84% of this observed damage. The problem is very high in Africa and Asia. Ethiopia is considered to have one of the most serious soil degradation problems in the world. The average annual rate of soil loss in Ethiopia is estimated to be 12 tons/ha/yr, and it can drastically exceed this on steep slopes with soil loss rates greater than 300 tons/ha/year, where vegetation is denuded. The problem is very much serious in the Ethiopian highlands. In mid 1980's, 27 million ha or almost 50% of the highland area was significantly erchoded, 14 million ha seriously eroded and over 2 million ha beyond reclamation. Recognizing the seriousness of the problem, the Ethiopian government launched a massive soil conservation program beginning the mid-1970s. However, most performance measures of soil and water conservation efforts of the country were failed. In 1980s, the concept of watershed management was implemented as a way of redressing the degradation of the natural resource base and increasing land productivity. From its introduction up to know, watershed management has being implementing in the country. Some success of conservation efforts following watershed management was reduced run off, soil erosion and associated downstream siltation, increased vegetation cover and surface roughness, increased soil depth, increased recharge of groundwater table, increased production area and green environment, increased crop production and productivity and improvement in fodder availability. The successes are indicators of sustainable resource conservation.

Land degradation is one of the major environmental hazards. It is one of the major causes of low and decline agricultural productivity, loss of biodiversity and poverty in Ethiopia. In order to combat the problem of land degradation, various efforts of land rehabilitation practices have been made throughout the country. Hence, rehabilitation of vast degraded land is crucial to local communities’ livelihood improvement. Therefore, the major objective of this study is to assess implications of land rehabilitation practices on livelihood conditions in Abeshege woreda, Gurage zone, SNNPR, Ethiopia. To achieve this objective, both primary and secondary data were generated by employing qualitative and quantitative data. A total of 226 households were selected from six kebeles by using systematic random sampling. Stratified sampling technique was also used to select male and female households. To collect the required information from selected respondents, questionnaire, key informants interviews, personal observation and focus group discussion were conducted by preparing checklists. Descriptive survey statistics such as frequency and percentage was used to analyze quantitative data. The qualitative data obtained from interviews and FGD was analyzed by describing and interpreting the deeply the situation of land rehabilitation practices on livelihood conditions. The finding of the study indicated that the trend of land rehabilitation practices have been increasing and results in increasing of crop productivity, livestock productivity and household incomes in the study area. However, population pressure, access of education, off- farming activities, community participation and local government and local NGOs are the major determinant factors in implementing land rehabilitation practices in effective way. The study findings strongly recommended that limiting family size by regulating population growth, awareness creation and training advocacy for SWC activities is must for farmers. To achieve this, working in consultation with local communities and strengthening partnership between local government and NGOs in land rehabilitation practices need to be given due attention. Key words: land degradation, land rehabilitation, livelihood; soil and water conservation Practices.

The Ethiopian Highlands have been studied extensively, hosting a large amount of research for development projects in agriculture and forestry over several decades. The encounters in these projects were also encounters of different ways of knowing that were negotiated by the actors meeting in the space provided by the projects. This research explores these encounters and the social worlds they are embedded in, drawing on actor-oriented approaches as well as theories of narratives and framing. Ways of knowing and citizen epistemologies are taken as a lens to understand the role of identities in knowledge production and use. The two case studies were agroforestry research projects in the Ethiopian Highlands. The research followed a range of qualitative and ethnographic research methods. Different types of farmers and scientists meet in the case studies. I recognise that they all have individual agency, nevertheless I use the terms ‘scientist’ and ‘farmer’ in this thesis. I use the terms to describe certain groups of actors who all draw on different ways of knowing, and different value systems, when interacting with each other and their environment. The results indicate that the importance of social worlds at different scales and the contexts of research projects tend to be underestimated. In spite of good intentions scientific methodologies, terminologies and narratives tend to dominate. Scientists in the case studies acknowledged the existence of farmers’ ‘indigenous’ knowledge, but they determined the value of knowledge by its scientific applicability and the replicability of experiments. Research systems force the scientists into a certain modus operandi with limited possibilities to experiment and to respond to the complexities and diversities of people's social worlds. Farmers in the case studies preferred observation from their parents, observing from others or the environment as a way of learning and gaining knowledge. Depending on their personalities and their life histories they also relied on alternative ways of knowing rooted in spirituality, emotions and memories. Powerful influences on ways of knowing resulted from the way languages and authority had been used. These often led to the exclusion of marginalised community members from access to knowledge and technologies. Unfortunately, common narratives prevailed in the case studies, and alternative ways of knowing were often marginalised. By acknowledging different ways of knowing and the importance of different social worlds and different ways of doing research, both scientists and farmers could benefit and develop more sustainable pathways for agricultural and forestry land use.

Rural household food security interventions can be effectively formulated or implemented through in-depth analysis of food security status and its determinants. Therefore, this study was conducted to measure the status and identify determinants of household food security in rural Konso woreda. Total of 252 households were selected by random sampling from five kebeles. Survey Questionnaire, Focus Group Discussion and Key Informant Interview were data collection methods employed. In addition, review of government reports and academic papers was made. The data is presented using mean, percentages, frequencies, etc. T-test, Chi-square, ANOVA and Bi-variate analysis were used to describe the characteristics of food-secure and food-insecure households. Multiple regressions model was used to identify important determinants of rural household food security. Results show that 66.3% of the households were food-insecure. Besides, the average and squared food insecurity gap among the food-insecure households were found to be 23.3% and 10.9%, respectively. Further analysis of food insecurity showed that 12.3% of the sampled households were marginally food-insecure, while 13.9% and 40.1% were moderately and severely food-insecure, respectively. The multiple regressions model has resulted in six significant variables among fifteen variables. These were farmland, sex, irrigation, annual income, dependency ratio and household size. Education, draught oxen, credit and extension services, agricultural inputs, livestock and age have showed non-significant positive contribution to rural household food security. Poor household health showed negative influence while availability of off-farm and/or non-farm activities showed negligible influence on rural household food security. In addition, erratic rainfall distribution and natural resource degradation are also among factors listed by Focus Group Discussion participants and Key informants as determinants of household food security. Finally, the recommendation is that the government and non-governmental organizations should consider statistically-significant variables and variables with positive contribution to the household food security as the most important areas of intervention.

This research was conducted in one of Shara kebele in the districts of Arba Minch Zuria, in south nations nationalities region located in the low land of Gamo Gofa Zone to assess the problems of soil erosion and to determine how these drivers of soil erosion affect the livelihood of farmers. The research was a case study undertaken in an identified micro-watershed making use of the questionnaire and interviews methods. A household sample was obtained by using a simple random sampling technique, information interviews was conducted with community representatives, and development agents who worked in the community. The objective of the proposal was to assess the causes of soil erosion on crop production and the impact/its effects on livelihoods of the community. The research methods were questionnaire and direct observation. The result of the study indicated that the effects of soil erosion on land productivity, agriculture and livestock production at large had a negative effect on livelihoods of the community members. Recommendation based on the research affirm the necessary to undertake large-scale natural resource management starting with community based watershed management thereby reducing the impact of land degradation on livelihoods of farmers and ensuring food security and sustainable land management.

The main objective of this study was to evaluate the farmers’ perception on soil erosion and their use of structural soil conservation measures. The data for this studywas collected via interviewees, key informants and field observations. Farmers perceived indicators of the existence of erosion and soil fertility loss differently. For many farmers, gully development and stoniness of soil were main indicators to soil erosion on their land. Others recognize by observing soil color. They also perceived well the causes of soil erosion in their lands as slope steepness of cultivation fields, ceaseless cultivation and absence offallowing with many time preparations of soil for cropping; still other causes have great roles.Severity of soil erosion in the study area explained as severe, moderate, minor soil erosion and a few cultivation fields had no erosion risk. Consequently, farmers well understood the results of severe soil erosion on their farms and recognized as loss of topsoil, reduction of yield over time, loss of vegetation cover and grasses, change in soil color, requiring high input and management, formation ofuncross-able gullies, lack of farm land and grazing field, and out migration. Structural soil conservation measures practiced in the study area included cutoff drains, soil bunds, fanya juu, waterways, check dams, and trench digging. Yet farmers have been using biological and agronomic soil conservation measureseither separately or in combination with structural soil conservation measures. Practices ofstructural soil conservation measures have been influenced by many factors. Aged farmers have practiced structural soil conservation less likely than young farmers. Female farmers also showed high interest towards structural soil conservation, yet they invested little and rarely practiced. On the contrary, educated farmers, household sizes, farmers involved in off farm jobs, perceiving soil erosion well, having contact with DA and training provide a fertile ground for increased practice of structural soil conservation measures. Soil conservation efforts need hand- in- hand cooperation with concerned experts while planning and implementation. To effectively plan for soil conservation measures application and introduce new techniques to manage resources in the right way, it is necessary to involve local farmers and have knowledge of local concepts such as that of soil classification, soil quality, soil fertility and soil erosion.

Peter Trutmann , Tilahun Amede

2007, Proceedings of A planning workshop on Thematic Research Area of the Global Mountain Program (GMP) held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, August 29-30, 2006,

Executive Summary: A two-day planning workshop on RUL was conducted from August 29-30, in Addis Ababa. The primary objective of the planning workshop was to enrich the draft conceptual framework for the RUL Thematic research area and devise the way forward for action research/development intervention to strengthen RUL and thereby support the development efforts of the country. The workshop was attended by 80 participants drawn from federal and regional government offices, higher learning institutions, civil society organizations, private sector and International Agricultural Research Centers. The workshop was officially opened with welcoming and opening remarks by high level officials from EIAR, GMP, EPA and MoARD. The workshop was organized in to paper presentation sessions and group work sessions followed by a panel discussion. The first day of the workshop was dedicated for paper presentations and second day for group work and panel discussions. Key outcomes of the workshop: - Cognizing that RUL was a missing element in Ethiopia’s development endeavor and the consideration of RUL in PASDEP, a general agreement was reached that the initiative will be instrumental in providing vital information in addressing the current gap. - While endorsing the proposed sub-thematic areas, it was recommended to depict clearly the interconnections between the sub themes in the design of the conceptual framework (see Figure 2 of the paper presented by Gete Zeleke (Page 30) which shows the revised conceptual framework as per the recommendation). - Priority action areas were identified under each sub-theme to be incorporated in the improved version of the concept note. The identified priority action areas are: ° Flow analysis (goods and services) • Natural resources – flows of water , energy, sediment, nutrients , pollutants within rural-urban continuum; • Products flow (Value chain analysis) – flows of forest, crop (including high value horticultural products) and livestock products and by products; agricultural inputs; market and market infrastructure; • Labor flow (migration) – migration (RU, RR, UR, cross boarder) including flows of remittance/capital and gender and age relations; • Knowledge and information flow – analysis of flows of market and other information, skills, services, etc; ° Policy and institutional analysis • Policy – rural policies, urban policies, RUL-relevant common policies and International conventions and agreements including land tenure policies; • Institution – public, private and communal institutions both in rural and urban settings, issues related to institutional linkages and stability; ° Livelihoods analysis • Economic activity options including new frontiers such as ➢ The role of tourism as alternative livelihood options within RUL setting ➢ Value adding, etc… • Natural resources (NR) and livelihood options (analysis of the interdependence of poverty and land degradation) • Analyzing peri-urban and urban agriculture – going for business unusual intervention to improve livelihoods • Impacts of cultural values and norms towards improved livelihood options and solutions • Physical distance and livelihood options • Migration as livelihoods option within the RUL context – challenges, opportunities and actions • Factors affecting choice of livelihood options in rural and urban settings • Policy and institutional requirements to improve livelihoods within RUL context ° Cross cutting issues • Capacity building requirements (on system development and spatial planning and the inter-linkage with sectoral planning approaches) • Gender and HIV/AIDS - Baseline research to identify key gaps, opportunities and intervention areas related to the three sub-thematic areas is recommended as a first activity. - The workshop recommends that the RUL initiative need to be strongly linked with the national R&D system. - The proposal to establish a RUL platform was endorsed as a freestanding organ. List of members of the platform, TOR (including roles and responsibilities) to be developed later. - Strong collaboration by different stakeholders was emphasized and recommended that the platform shall be one avenue to ensure close collaboration. - In addition to the benchmark site and satellite cities proposed, it was recommended to include emerging urban areas such as Assosa and Gambella "

Writing your proposal

These guidelines are designed to assist you in developing and writing a project proposal.

Students sat at a table writing.

Do I need to write a research proposal?

All applications for PhD study places in the department of Geography must include a proposal that outlines your topic and proposed programme of research. The only exception to this requirement is when you are applying only for an advertised project, for which the title and description of the project are already given.

Your proposal will help us to make sure that:

  • the topic is viable
  • the department can provide appropriate supervision and other resources
  • you have thought through your interest in, and commitment to, a piece of research

We recommend that you use our Find a supervisor page to identify a staff member who can provide you with advice on your topic and proposal before you apply.

What should my research proposal look like?

We advise that research proposals are approximately 1000—1500 words long and should contain the following elements:

A provisional title

This is the headline for your proposed research and so it should include any key concepts, empirical focus, or lines of inquiry that you aim to pursue. Whilst your title may change, it is important to devise a title that describes what you aspire to research.

A key question, hypothesis or the broad topic for investigation

You need key questions or hypotheses to drive your research. These will need to be original, timely and of importance to the discipline. This could involve investigating something that no-one has looked at before, or it might mean taking a fresh approach to an existing topic or issue.

An outline of the key aims of the research

What will the PhD do? Your aims will be broader than the questions/hypotheses. They should give a prospective statement about the overall destination of the PhD and its potential impact.

A brief outline of key literature in the area (what we already know)

This section should situate your topic with reference to the existing research literature. At PhD level, a literature review is more than simply a descriptive mapping exercise, it should cite key theories or debates and suggest how your project would engage with them.

A description of the topic and an explanation of why further research in the area is important (the gap in the literature - what we need to know)

This section follows logically from the previous one. It highlights what the gap in current knowledge is and how your research will contribute original scholarship. Will your research provide a new perspective, generate new evidence, challenge existing assumptions? By whom might the PhD be valued: scholars looking at a particular issue, communities within specific institutions, certain groups of people?

Details of how the research will be carried out, including any special facilities or resources required and any necessary skills which you either have already or would need to acquire (the tools that will enable us to fill the gap you have identified)

A clear methodological statement shows how you will execute your research project. This section should outline your approach to your research as well as the methods you will use. Of course, the resources you will need will vary according to the nature of the research: access to a particular archive, specialist library, visits to field sites, the use of analytical software, access to databases, training, workshop attendance and so on. It is important to list any of these resources and give a very brief account of how their role in your research.

A plan and timetable of the work you will carry out

Submission of the PhD is expected to take place by the end of the tuition-fee paying period, which for most PhD candidates will be at 3.5 years from the date of commencing PhD study. This section should show how you will carry out your research within that timeframe. Try to be as detailed as you can at this stage.

How do I submit my research proposal?

Upload your research proposal document (as a PDF or Word document) within the online application form as part of your PhD study place application .

If you further intend to apply for a scholarship, we recommend that you consult your proposed supervisor on appropriate scholarship opportunities and on adapting your proposal to meet the requirements of the scholarships section of the online application form.

Writing support for international applicants

The Faculty of Social Sciences has partnered with the English Language Teaching Centre (ELTC) to introduce a new Bridge Programme for International Applicants . Find out how this online course can support you at the start of your PhD journey.

Annually, the NGGDPP solicits proposals from state geological surveys for the preservation and rescue of geoscience materials and data. Funding opportunities may be available to U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) bureaus annually as funding allows. A review panel evaluates and ranks the proposals according to four criteria: technical merit; societal project benefits; knowledge, performance, and experience of project personnel; and reasonableness of budget for proposed project.  

Note: This section, Tips and Examples, focuses primarily on guidance for state geological surveys, but the suggestions also apply to DOI opportunities. Cost-share requirements and package submission to grants.gov do not apply to the DOI.

Proposal applicants are encouraged to consider the following guidance for drafting impactful proposals:

  • Clear justification for preserving the selected data and materials should be provided, including how the results of the project meet the organization priorities and benefit stakeholders and society.
  • The Program places high value on increasing access to preserved materials. Ideally, digital data should be made readily available through digital means.
  • The project and workflow process should be described.
  • Federal share of the cost of the proposed activities must be  no more than 50 percent of the total cost . The state portion can be larger than the federal portion; however, if the federal contribution is more than the state portion - regardless of the amount - the grant proposal shall be disqualified and will not be evaluated by the grant review panel. 
  • Descriptions of project personnel and their experience and skills relevant to complete the proposed tasks must be provided.
  • Equipment funding requests including scanners, computers, storage media, and relevant software licenses are acceptable as long as the equipment is necessary for the successful completion of the work funded by the NGGDPP. A full justification and a dealer or manufacturer quote are required for any proposed equipment purchase. 
  • Submission of proposal package to grants.gov should be initiated well in advance of due date.

Areas Of Geography

Geography is a field of study that explores the Earth’s physical features, human activities and their interactions. It examines the spatial patterns, processes, and relationships between the environment and society. Geographers investigate the Earth’s surface, analyzing its landscapes, climate, ecosystems and resources, as well as the distribution of populations, cultures, economies, and political systems. There are several types of geography, each focusing on specific aspects of the Earth’s physical and human dimensions:

Physical geography examines natural phenomena like landforms, weather and ecosystems. Human geography studies human activities, such as population distribution, urbanization and cultural landscapes. Economic geography explores the spatial patterns of economic activities, trade and resource distribution. Political geography analyzes the political systems, boundaries and geopolitical relationships between regions. Environmental geography investigates the interactions between humans and the environment, including environmental issues and sustainability. Geographical information systems (GIS) and remote sensing employ technology to analyze spatial data and maps.

These subfields together provide a comprehensive understanding of the Earth’s complexities and its relationship with human society.
