Abstract

The Amhara National Regional State similar to other regional states of the country has faced enormous economic and social problems. The question of housing and other real estate construction for high population pressure, the development and investment questions, poor public utility facilities and other public interests are some of the problems that need the intervention of the Regional government. In order to facilitate these needs of the society, the city municipalities have been using “expropriation” as a meaningful and useful management tool. However, different compensation standards among government institutions, inadequate compensation standards for loss of land use rights, shortage of professional and qualified valuers, lack of reliable data and poor expropriation, valuation and compensation procedures are some of the problems that impede the implementation of expropriation, valuation and compensation in the region in general and in the two big cities of the region (Bahir-Dar and Gonder) in particular. This study therefore tries to deal about eminent domain powers of the government in acquiring land for public use in Amhara National Regional State particularly referring to the two big cities ( Bahir-Dar and Gonder) focusing on the expropriation process, valuation practice, fairness and adequacy of compensation payable.
