Research/Consultancy Services

Very recently, as a lead Chair of the EiABC, Urban & Regional Planning Chair conducted and submitted a research project – "Evaluation of Implementation of Addis Ababa 2003-2010 City Development Pan". The client of the research project was the Addis Ababa City Government, The senior staff members of the chair were engaged as team leader of the different plan components, and the whole research project was coordinated and supervised by Dr. Fisseha Wegayehu. As a general objective the research project had two objectives. The first one was the evaluation of implementation of the structure plan of Addis Ababa City, and the second one was, to draw recommendations based on the evaluation result. On the other hand, the research project had specific objectives too. Some of them were the assessment of the development impact/outcomes; assessment of implementation processes and procedures; assessment of the role of major stakeholders in planning process & development; and finally, to come up with the conclusions and workable recommendations for future planning endeavours.

The thematic scope of the research was to look into the structural plan of Addis Ababa city and all its components, as well as, to look into selected Local Development Plans. Whereas, the spatial scope of the research was limited to the Addis Ababa City legal boundaries.The evaluation was undertaken and organized into eleven thematic issues as per the structure plan components of the City Development Plan. More than thirty professionals with multidiscipline academic backgrounds from different chairs of the EiABC, as well as, external professionals, participated in the research project. Furthermore, more than sixteen students of the graduate programs of EiABC were involved, in data gathering and map production, for the research project.In a way that was appropriate, the evaluation was conducted a detailed investigation on the planning approach and status of implementation of the different components. The output of the research was a compiled document on each of the planning components: Historical Sites & Structures; Manufacturing Industries & Storage Facilities; Centrality; Housing; Strategic Investment Area; Urban Transport; Road Network; Environment ; Market Hierarchy; Local Development Plan ; Health Service ; Education Sector;  Municipal Service; Role of Addis Ababa in the National and International Context. Furthermore, an executive summary document on the findings and recommendations for future planning endeavours was additional output of the research. Needless to say, it was one of the major consultancy tasks that based its findings and recommendations on a research.
