Hawassa is a city in Ethiopia, located on the Great Rift Valley’s Lake Awassa’s shoreline. It’s 273 kilometers (170 kilometers) south of Addis Ababa via Bishoftu, 130 kilometers (81 kilometers) east of Sodo, and 75 kilometers (47 kilometers) north of Dilla. The town serves as the Sidama Region’s capital. It is located at a latitude and longitude of 7°3′N 38°28′EC on the Trans-African Highway 4 Cairo-Cape Town. 7°3′N 38°28′E, with a height of 1,708 meters (5,604 feet) above sea level. Its name is derived from a Sidamic term that means “large body of water.” Hawassa University, Awasa Adventist College, and a major market are all located in the city, which contains Wondo Genet College of Forestry and Natural Resources, an Agricultural College, the Main Campus, and a Health Sciences College. Awasa Airport (ICAO code HALA, IATA AWA) opened in 1988 and serves the city. The main branch provides postal service, as well as electrical and telephone service. The St. Gabriel Church and the Awassa Kenema Stadium are two popular local attractions. Fishing is a big deal in this town. From around 1978 until the introduction of the 1995 Constitution, Hawassa served as the capital of the old Sidamo Province. The capital of the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples’ Region was then established. The city became a component of the Sidama Region when it was founded in June 2020. Both the Sidama Region and the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples’ Region have Hawassa as their capital. The Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples’ Region’s seat of government will remain in Hawassa for two national electoral cycles, following which the regional administration will relocate to a city within the region’s borders. If all goes according to plan, Hawassa will be known as the capital of Ethiopian textile and garment production in a few years, and the apparel industry will be a significant contributor to the national economy.
