Lunch UP: Urban Ecology in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Lunch UP

Urban Ecology in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Presenter: Dr. Kumelachew Yeshitela, Institute for Architecture, Building Construction and City Planning

Dr. Yeshitela will focus on the challenges of urbanization in Ethiopia, focusing on the environmental problems of Addis Ababa. Then discuss how they’re trying to tackle these problems through the formal education system and through research and the collaboration they’re having with city stakeholders.

These sessions are a response to requests from faculty and students to learn more about what’s going on in the field in an informal environment. We hope this can inspire emergent thoughts and connections that will inform our scholarship. If you have research you would like to present, or a provocative article you would like to discuss, please speak with Larissa Larsen, David Weinreich, or Carla Kayanan.
