1. BELAYNESH, KEBEDE. STUDENTS’ AWARENESS AND ATTITUDE TOWARDS LAND DEGRADATION AND DEFORESTATION (IN THE CASE OF ADDIS ABABA UNIVERSITY) .

Degree: 2012, Addis Ababa University

The purpose of this study was to investigate university students’ awareness and attitude towards rural environmental degradation. To achieve the objectives of the study 289 students were selected through stratified sampling from three faculties in Addis Ababa University. Students were assessed using multiple choice awareness test and Likert type of attitude scale. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistic; t-test, Pearson correlation coefficient and ANOVA. All statistical manipulations were done by SPSS 15 version for windows. The result of the study revealed that generally the students found to have moderate level of awareness and favorable attitude towards land and forest resources. In the case of item by item analysis students found to have less x awareness for some of the environmental issues raised in the study. Students also have unclear stand for some of the issues raised in the attitude items. The study also revealed that there was statistically significant difference in mean awareness score of students in terms of gender and age. It shows that male and relatively old age students found to have better awareness about the problem, causes, consequences and solution of land degradation and deforestation. In addition, statistically significant mean awareness difference was observed between students from urban and rural areas. This indicated that students from rural areas had better awareness to land and forest resources. On the other hand, the mean awareness score difference between second and fourth year students was significant. That fourth year students found to have better awareness for land and forest resources. The ANOVA summary for awareness also showed the existence of significant mean difference among faculties and departments. Thus the sampled students in Social Science College and departments of PSIR and GES found to have better awareness to land and forest resources. Moreover, the analysis of attitude based on the independent variables shows the absence of significant difference between male and female, second year and fourth year students’ mean score. It was also insignificant between urban and rural, and age of students. Thus, male and female, second year and fourth year, relatively old and young, rural and urban students found to have similar attitude towards land degradation and deforestation. The ANOVA summary for attitude also did show the existence of significant mean difference among faculties and departments’. Thus, the sampled students in Social Science College and departments of PSIR and GES found to have more favorable attitude to land and forest resources. The correlation coefficient also revealed that there was a significant positive correlation between environmental attitude and awareness, but it is weak. This implies that to some extent awareness may lead to an initial development of attitude which in turn may result in increasing awareness. Generally integration of environmental education is a must to bring similar and high level of awareness and favorable attitude among… Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Tesfaye Shiferaw (advisor).

2. Meaza, Hadush. The Role Of Watershed Approch In Adaption To Climate Varibality And Change: The Case Of Mariamshewito Watershed In Adwa Wereda, Northern Ethiopia.

Degree: 2014, Addis Ababa University

Currently, climate change and its impacts is a key issue in Ethiopia. Adaptation to climate change is making a system suitable to moderate the impact of climate change or deal with the consequence or to take advantage of new opportunities. In line with this, the thesis has assessed the role of community managed watershed for climate variability adaptation in Adwa in the case of mariamshewito Watershed. To address the above objective, the study uses both qualitative and quantitative data type. In order to collect valuable information, semi structured questionnaire, focus group discussion, key informant guide checklist, and observation tools from both primary and secondary data sources were applied. Similarly, different statistical methods such as percentage of frequencies, bar graphs, X 2 test, independent and paired sample T-Test and one way ANOVAs were used. The key finding of the thesis presents that due to different interventions the livelihood of the community was diversified and enhanced especially; income, soil fertility, crop productivity, forest, water and food availability become improved. Even if it has some gaps in the process of implementation such as lack of linkage between sectors, lack of targeting problem to address the poor, the young and the women, weak stakeholder linkage. It is concluded that the watershed management can play a significant role to enhance household’s livelihood and cope with climate change impacts. Then, to fill the gap and go along the sustainability of the watershed, the study recommended based on the findings. Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Tesfaye Shiferaw (advisor).
