Gedeo Cultural landscape
The Gedeo cultural landscape represents the traditional agroforestry practices of the indigenous Gedeo community.
The Gedeo have used the forests for millennia for the cultivation of enset (a plant that is the ingredient for a staple flatbread) and later coffee. They developed a system of customary laws and norms to use the forests sustainably. The area also includes ritual sites such as megalithic clusters of steles.
