I strongly believe that everyday political conflict, poor health system and rich climatic conditions are some of the factors that contribute to most of zoonotic outbreaks. One other aspect that we need to look at is the massive gap in "one health" approach, clearly the Veterinary services , eologists etc is poor and no collaborations with the human medical sciences to tackle the problems.

Adaptation is a natural dimension of research. Definitely you can explore the usability of an already existing method with different condition and observe what can emerge. But you can not report this paper as a methodology contribution, rather you can claim you contribution as survey saying that you have surveyed an existing method with different context. The method is not the scientific condition you are making, rather you can claim the context or empirical testbed you are offering is your contribution.

- There is a fast-paced land-use change (urbanization) in one of the sub-watersheds (dominantly agricultural watershed) of the upper Blue Nile basin.
- There is both residential and industrial expansion that may have an impact on the riverine regime of the catchment including water quality.
- There is also currently an effort being made by the local sector to regulate the water flow (mainly the flood during the main rainy season) for irrigation purposes to enhance the agricultural productivity in that area.
- Hence, it calls to research the WFE nexus to come up with a better synergy between the health of the ecosystem and development.

We have been preparing predictive soil property (sand, Silt, Clay, pH and EC of the top soil) maps for an area (about 60 km2) using Digital soil mapping techniques in R with random forest in Southern Ethiopia. About 33 covariates were used. The results revealed that the R squared values for instance for clay fraction of the top soil is negative and very small (-0.12). Can R square values be negative? If so, what are the implications of such results?
Relevant answer
Answer
first of all, it is a pseudo R2, in random Forest it is computed as 1 - mse / Var(y). so yes it can be negative. Some package impute 0 to negative values before reporting them.
also, Duong Pham Luu Trung , that is not correct: you can have a negative R^2 if out-of-sample data are used to compute that statistic for linear regression - only in-sample what you say holds.

I was gathering data about Arsi University Bekoji campus, and I observed something about the city planning. On the right side of the google image (in 2019), you can see the new urban development, and on the left side, what is most probably agricultural villages and Greenfield. The new urban development follows one of the typical city plannings I have seen all over Ethiopia, which follows a grid pattern to arrange the urban blocks and in contrast, the Greenfield has its own block pattern, which I think is the result of the social, cultural, and historical way of arranging plot of lands. It shows the trails of what is left of the ‘traditional planning.’ My whole point here is, why don’t the city planners appreciate and try to incorporate the traditional/ unexplored knowledge into the planning. That way, each city can have a unique experience and preserve the inhabitants’ lifestyle. Of course, my assumptions might be wrong, so if you are from, visited, or lived in Arisi, I would like to know what you think? Or let me know what you think about the planning ?

Early civilisations, including Ethiopia, have been found in sub-Saharan Africa but dating back to early Christian times. I suspect little money and effort has been expended to find more within homo sapiens original home, certainly compared to the money spent on the search for ancient human fossils.
Simple assumptions, prejudice or the need to redefine civilisation? While the previous term is employed for settlements or cities, these are further defined as ones of stone or brick. Usually, they exhibited the same structural or design qualities with large central buildings and defined areas of settlement based on class.
In Central Asia at the time of the early great Sumerian cities like Uruk, a huge Kurgan complex of tents existed. Archaeologists and historians do not of course refer to it as a civilisation, at least in the same way they reference Sumeria.
If some attempt is made, will we find huge settlements of mud huts covering wide areas throughout the region? Will we also discover writing?
Relevant answer
Answer
That greater movement occurred is probably the case. The Sumerians (early Uruk), expanding their mercantile territory certainly got into Anatolia and Egypt.
Of course, civilisation was not only made of stone.

My post today is directed to registered nurses from Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, and South Africa.
I am interested in collecting research data from the African countries listed above. Thus, I would like to collaborate with one nurse from each of these countries. The nurse will be responsible for coordinating the data collection in the country and all the logistics related to that country. In return, the nurse will get more research experience and payment or research experience and co-authorship in the resulting publications.
The population will be women who have undergone mastectomy and those who are scheduled to undergo mastectomy. This means that you must be working in a healthcare facility that offers such surgical services.

Question

I found this policy recommendation, ''In order to avoid slum expansion, the urban land laws have to be revised and the land ownership right has to be partially transferred to individuals. Currently, illegal selling of land is rampant as the landholders afraid the government will take the land anytime, against their will. This has created illegal land grabbing, slum expansion, pollution, and loss of agricultural capacity. Therefore, legalizing land sales, controlling the process, and preparation proper land-use plans will eliminate the problem from the root. The government will also collect tax from the sale. It will also support the landholder to use their land as collateral for a construction loan for the building project. However, as land is the main source of income for the government, transferring fully might affect the financial and decision-making capacity of the government. Therefore, I recommend partially transferring the land resource to individuals. The amount of land to be owned by individuals can be regulated by law so that a fair amount of land can be distributed to citizens''.
Relevant answer
Answer
The reason that the quality of slums is so abysmal is that many slums are created by squatters. They have no property rights, so they cannot have confidence that their slums will be protected. They need property rights, either Torrens or title insurance.
The reason that some owners cannot able to service their (mortgage) loans is that the price is not sufficiently low for those people to be owners. So why can't they acquire lower quality or smaller sized homes? The answer is that these homes are not allowed by building or housing codes. So when these lesser homes come into existence, they are outside the realm of government approved housing.

Lead is most dangerous to children, especially those under six. According to CDC nearly one half of a million children living in the United States have levels of lead in their blood that exceed ten micrograms of lead per deciliter of blood, a level at which adverse health effects are known to occur. Lead poisoning can affect virtually every body system; it can damage a child’s central nervous system, kidneys, and reproductive system. Why lead is most dangerous to children? and how can we prevent it?
Relevant answer
Answer
The growing bodies of children absorb more lead. At high levels of exposure, lead attacks the brain and central nervous system to cause coma, convulsions and even death. Children who survive severe lead poisoning may be left with mental retardation and behavioural disorders.

I want to see how GDP growth rate is associated with the growth rate of household consumption. Indirectly if there is an estimate how a % change in GDP growth rate contribute to a % change in household consumption in Ethiopia, if not any other developing country experience.
I really appreciate for your contribution.
Relevant answer
Answer
This is a noteworthy discussion, Professor Kidanemariam Gebregziabher . As mentioned by Hubermane Ciguino, the correlation between GDP per capita and household consumption can be depicted by the national income identity. Moreover, I absolutely agree with Professor Akhmad Solikin, the national income identity shows that GDP is the response variable while consumption is the explanatory one.
I would like to contribute to this discussion by pointing out that the national income identity is undoubtedly complex. Investment is a function of saving. Besides, saving is negatively impacted by consumption as income equals consumption plus saving (Y = C + S). Into the bargain, as income rises, marginal propensity to consume falls while marginal propensity to save increases. Furthermore, government spending is a function of tax. Also, tax revenue, particularly from value added tax or sales tax is determined by consumption. Yet, consumption is affected by income tax. And lastly, import is impacted by consumption as well. In a nutshell, the explanatory variables indicate multicollinearity.

Hello, Mr Holbert and Mr Steven has spoken so well. Just like Mr Steven said, you need to concentrate on a specific task. First define whether it is macroscopic traffic condition or microscopic traffic condition.
Let's say you are going for microscopic, the data you need will vary from that of the macroscopic. You will need data like
1. Hourly traffic volumes(you can obtain this by counting, from the state transport ministry or by prognosis.
2. You need the geometric parameters of the intersections you want to analyse(on this note I would advise you deal on only major intersections, maybe the ones with the most traffic congestion)
3. The analysis itself with softwares or by hand.
On the other hand, if it is the macroscopic traffic condition you want to study, then you need the
1. Land use data (this will help in the trip origin and destination and zones)
2. The OD pairs
3. Geometry of links, stops, etc.
It is also worthwhile to note that you should make up your mind on whether you are focusing on private transport or PuT as the approaches may differ

I am a PhD student in Hydrology and water resources management. I am planning to conduct my research on WEF nexus in selected basin in Ethiopia. I am looking for appropriate approaches to follow and adopted tools (models) to use at Ethiopian context.
Relevant answer
Answer
Conducting literature review and compiling or considering available information by basin, nationally and even sometimes within same physiographic areas in adjacent countries, various remote sensing data, rain, stream, climate, soil, geology, crops, land use and cover types, groundwater, irrigation, hydrologic boundary data. Then considering the resources available and your time, interests, develop a plan or proposal for review by your advisors. They will probably support a proposal that addresses the issues, is not a repeat of other work, and is doable within the time typically allowed. You may need to confine it to selected areas or hydrologic units if it becomes too much. Selected plots or catchments can sometimes be helpful if the national or basin scales end up in mass number crunching, but little real ability to speak to specific soil, crop, water issues desired.

these strategies have been addressed for about two decades in Ethiopia but the results received from all these attempts are very discouraging. Some Ethiopian scholars have been doing research on the possible reasons behind the problem and suggested solutions accordingly. In spite of all these attempts, we failed to get a viable solution to the existing problem. So, the problem still exists in its exaggerated form. Is there anyone who can advise me about the possible solutions that could boost-up the effective implementation of the two strategies in the Ethiopian context as a developing nation, please?

  • There are different sources of energy. Energy is neither created nor destroyed it will transform from one state to the other. One of the source of energy is chemical energy. Our body is a chemical machine. Due to our sophisticated brain we are not electronics but assume as we are biological machine. The other source of energy is mechanical energy. In this case our body to move from one place to another it needs something that makes it to move that is mechanical energy. Our nerve system on the other hand function with the help of hormonal (chemical) and electrical signal. So I think you are saying this energy.

Dears,
I am looking for a ground-truth data set collected in Ethiopia during the last 3 years that I could use to calibrate a supervised classification (e.g. with Random Forest) processing satellite images (most likely Sentinel-2 given the geography).
The ideal data set would be a georeferenced vector file (e.g. KML, ESRI - Shapefile) containing points or polygons (even better) with the identification of the crop.
Thanks in advance for your support.
Best,
C.

Answer
The African Landcover map (20m) by ESA is not yet validated and might be erroneous to use with such high detail mapping as crop identification. Maybe agricultural areas would least suffice as a land cover.

how are these sciences integrated to enhance better Environmental perception?
Relevant answer
Answer
Environmental Management integrates the field of geography, surveying, chemistry, economics, politics and law, sociology and ecology and even more. But then the best form of integration will be achieved by practice. Environmental Impact Assessment as a tool and practice in environmental management integrates all stakeholders in the environment to achieve a goal which is sustainability. You should carefully adopt a conceptual framework depending on the aspects of integration you so wish to define for clarity sake. good luck.

Relevant answer
Answer
According to the world bank, the poverty headcount ratio at $1.90 a day (2011 PPP) was 26.7% of population in Ethiopia (2015). Ethiopia is one of the fast growing economies. Unfortunately, its still highly dependent in agriculture sector.
I personally believe the improvement in manufacturing sector in Ethiopia is compulsory. It will be interesting to see how the government improves its manufacturing sector (maybe attract FDI). Its very crucial for an economy to have a growing manufacturing sector to push out of poverty (create a healthy middle class).

Answer
I think I would still utilise a questionnaire.
You just need to look at appropriate questions to ask that can meet your requirements. I would use a Likert 5 point scale for the questions because its easier for respondents to fill out and you'll likely get a greater response. Likert, if you didnt already know is asking a question and looking at a five point response scale, for example Strongly Disagree / Disagree / Neutral / Agree / Strongly Agree.
I would tailor the first part of the questionnaire to understand experience prior to the training. This will help you identify experienced employee's who have been potentially utilising the training previously vs people who are brand new.
Then the second part of the questionnaire ask questions related to the training given on the day.
The third section ask questions that are related to knowledge retention and utilisation of the training. This will help you identify weakness in the training were you may need to modify it, to get a better response and also identify areas of training which have been successful and people have retained the information and are practising it.
Finally, I would try and keep time period after the training when receiving the questionnaire uniform. i.e. 3 / 6 months or 1 year after competing the training. That way you will capture the people who have already completed the training but will be getting their opinions a period afterwards, negating the need to question them directly after the training which is now impossible.
Hope this helps.

The only reason to be doing a study like this is if field experience suggests some unique causes that are typical to the this particular group. In that case, such a study can be justified. In other words, an intersectionality lens that disaggregates different tribal groups rather than lumps them all together as a homogenous category. Basic causes at a broad level are the same, so even the title would need to reflect the fact that a particular nuance is being explored.

You can see all the stations and their start of operations here (some have been running for decades, many stations will offer the data for the years you are looking for - note that the NMA has over 1000 stations collecting data):
Data requests have to be made directly to the NMA, and they charge per data point. In theory, you can request data online here:
However, in my experience you need to go to the NMA directly, or have someone go on your behalf. However, before going, determine which stations you are looking for. Once you are in the office, the process is relatively straight forward.
