Abstract:This special issue contains four articles on Ethiopia. The first, by Johnathan Bascom et al., surveys the development of geography as an academic discipline in Ethiopia since 1950, its current landscape, and future challenges. The second article, by Tefera Tarekegn and John Overton, deals with isolation as a development strategy. It presents the findings of research in an isolated rural village in Ethiopia which has actively resisted the construction of a road to link it to the outside world. The next article, by Woldeamlak Bewket, examines farmers' perception and knowledge of the soil erosion process and its impacts and control techniques in the northwestern highlands of Ethiopia. In the last article, Aynalem Adugna discusses a GIS (Geographic Information System)-assisted identification of areas suitable for irrigation-based resettlement in Ethiopia. [ASC Leiden abstract]
