Contextualizing Urban Poverty: The Case of Cheri Safar Arada Sub-city of Addis Ababa

Yonas Tesema Amaya


This article attempted to explore urban poverty and its indicators in Arada sub-city of Addis Ababa particularly Cheri Safar. It is known that Addis Ababa is the ‘political capital’ of Africa. However, the city has numerous problems and I do not think there is a solid enough fit between its image and local reality. People are being sufferers from lack of basic infrastructures (houses, toilets, water supply and proper sanitations). Therefore, this paper is designed to show the concomitant livelihood deterioration in very specific Cheri Safar of Arada sub-city of Addis Ababa.

Keywords: poverty, household, basic infrastructure
