From Farm to City: Adhi Megbi, a Place in Transition

Well to a town in transition, welcome to Adhi Megbi (which literally means land of food or land of lunch).

There is no better example of the level of rapid development Ioannes, Selam, and Beraki all faced then Adhi Megbi. This town is in the current process of rapid development. Adhi Megbi was founded as one of the many agricultural communities in L'Érythreé created by the provincial government on reclaimed land to ensure adequate food supply for the rapidly growing population of the province. Yet what the provincial government did not anticipate was the rate of demand spillover to these communities.


As demand began to spillover from Ioannes and Selam to the smaller surrounding agricultural towns such as Adhi Megbi, these towns began to grow and attract new residents. Adhi Megbi is still essentially an agricultural community, however, it is also a pretty sizable town with a very dense city center. This is turning Adhi Megbi, and many towns like it, into a juxtaposition of rural locals and invading urbanites.


Here it is possible to see the extent of demand and development with the farms slowly decreasing to make room for further residential development and forcing the provincial government to reclaim more land for agricultural use.
