The Agew The beautiful Kidist Brihan has a message. Agew Awi is a zone in the Amhara Region of Ethiopia. It is named for the Awi sub-group of the Agaw people, some of whom live in this Zone. Agew Awi Zone is bordered on the west by Benishangul-Gumuz Region, on the north by North Gondar Zone, and on the east by West Gojjam. The administrative center of Agew Awi is Injibara; other towns include Chagni, Agew Gimjabet, Tilili, Adis Kidame, Azena, Zigem, and Dangila.
Topographically speaking, Agaw Awi is relatively flat and fertile, whose elevations vary from 1,800 to 3,100 m above sea level, with an average altitude of about 2,300 m. The Zone is crossed by about nine permanent rivers which drain into the Abay (or the Blue Nile); other water features include two crater lakes, Zengena and Tirba, and Zimbiri marsh, located 5 km southwest of Addis Kidam. Local forests include Dukma and Apini, located on either side of the town of Kidamaja, Zengena forest around Lake Zengena, and Goobi,l forest on a dome-shaped hill next to Kessa. The Agaw have traditionally practiced a land-management system that is well adapted to the local ecology, which enables them to sustain the fertility of the soil and minimize erosion; this area is recognized as one of the most productive in the Amhara Region.
