Urban Planning and Everyday Urbanisation : A Case Study on Bahir Dar, Ethiopia (Paperback) (Nadine
About this item
Urbanization in Bahir Dar, Ethiopia, poses challenges to urban living conditions. Construction and settling processes have largely remained incremental, although in the year 2005 a new national urban policy was introduced. Nadine Appelhans focuses on the relation of statutory planning standards to practices of everyday urbanization. The findings from Bahir Dar suggest that socio-economic segregation has continued. There is therefore a need for policy changes. This study argues that urban development needs to be locally grounded, differentiated, and inclusive, based in a typology of neighborhoods and neighborhood specificities.
