Addis Ababa

'''Addis Ababa''' ( http: www.ethiodemographyandhealth.org Chapter_2_Population_Data_Sources.pdf

As a chartered city (city-state#Cities that are component states of federations) (''ras gez astedader''), Addis Ababa has the status of both a city and a state (Regions of Ethiopia). It is where the African Union and its predecessor the OAU (Organisation of African Unity) are based. It also hosts the headquarters of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) and numerous other continental and international organizations. Addis Ababa is therefore often referred to as "the political capital of Africa" due to its historical, diplomatic and political significance for the continent.

The city is populated by people from different regions of Ethiopia – the country has as many as 80 nationalities speaking 80 languages and belonging to a wide variety of religious communities. It is home to Addis Ababa University. The Federation of African Societies of Chemistry (FASC) and Horn of Africa Press Institute (HAPI) are also headquartered in Addis Ababa.
