Study Session 6  Land Use and Urban Planning


This is the second study session that looks at the growing trend for people to live in urban rather than rural areas. Study Session 5 described the main causes and effects of urbanisation. In this study session we will review how urbanisation changes the nature of the land surface and the consequences of that change. We will then consider the role of urban planning in reducing some of the negative effects of urbanisation and look at current urban development in Ethiopia.
