Development ' Université d'Addis Ababa). Budget: 547.000 '.To respond to the lack of planning and research on small towns in
Ethiopia, the project aims to develop, form one side, research capacities within the EiABC (Ethiopian Institute of Architecture, Building
Construction & City Development) and, form the other side, to create a multidisciplinary planning Laboratory that will
operate as an interface between academic researchers, decision-makers for small towns' planning and local communi-ties. The research
project funds 4 PhD theses on small towns development ' with a particular focus on the ca-se of the Amdewerk ' that will have a
multidisciplinary character, including social, economic, demographic, environmental components, and will thus benefit from the
participation of numerous and disciplinary different research units in Belgium and Ethiopia.
