While opening the workshop, Alemayehu Wassie (Ph.D), Executive Director of ORDA noted that livelihood and social harmony in rural and urban communities anywhere depend on access to and proper utilization of natural resources, land in particular. However, in recent years, the excessive use of these natural resources has led to resource depletion, loss of biodiversity, conflicts and internal displacements he said. Driving forces such as population growth, urbanization, the misuse of land and water resources as well as insufficient knowledge and technical capacities to design, plan and implement proper land use plans are worsening the problem he added.
