(Assefa Fiseha); Development programs and the post-MDG agenda (Amdissa Teshome). Part II - Decentralization and regional and local development: trends and policy implications (Tegegne Gebre-Egziabher); Inter-governmental transfers and the problem of imbalances in regional development: the need for a human rights approach (Solomon Negussie). Part III - Post-dependent rural development: engaging and assessing subjective well-being (Jeffrey Bookwalter and Peter H. Koehn); Large-scale land investments revisited (Dessalegn Rahmato); The expansion of the sugar industry in the southern pastoral lowlands (Asnake Kefale and Fana Gebresenbet); Governance challenges of dry woodlands (Melaku Bebele and Habtemariam Kassa).
