- KurzbeschreibungThis book<br>reviews contemporary research on urban infrastructure in 76 Ethiopian cities.<br>It examines urban infrastructure issues in these cities and covers a wide range<br>of topics from sustainability and smart cities to research methods employed by<br>urban infrastructure investigators with regard to Ethiopian cities. Research on<br>urban infrastructure legitimacies and modalities has established its value<br>worldwide in recent years, though it is still fairly young in the Ethiopian<br>context.<br>The first chapter outlines ongoing issues of debate concerning urban<br>infrastructures, including but not limited to discourses on sustainability, smart<br>cities, innovative financing methods, and potential partnerships. Urban<br>infrastructure issues in Ethiopian cities are examined in the second chapter, while<br>the third chapter presents a review of the most relevant literature for<br>researchers. Findings show that the citations in the research reports are<br>mainly from the materials available over the internet, including WHO,<br>UN-Habitat and unpublished local materials. The fourth chapter identifies<br>patterns in the findings and recommendations of the research reports discussed.<br>The results reveal that there is a wider gap between supply and demand with<br>regard to urban infrastructure in Ethiopian cities, a situation that is further<br>aggravated because of the growing urban population and already existing<br>backlogs. The fifth chapter reviews the essential methods employed by urban<br>infrastructure investigators in Ethiopian cities. In this regard, the cross-sectional<br>study method with the use of survey method has been broadly adopted among<br>investigators.<br>Lastly, the book presents a summary and recommendations. It was observed that the<br>urban infrastructure boom in Ethiopia is primarily concentrated in the key<br>cities, and the current pattern of urban infrastructure provision does not<br>incorporate the notion of sustainability. Hence, the book calls for setting the<br>agenda of future research on urban infrastructure and services in Ethiopian<br>cities together with the universities, private sector and government, who should<br>ideally collaborate to produce the knowledge needed to improve quality of life,<br>welfare, productivity, and economic growth.<br>
