Sustainability of Projects Focusing on Access to Water in Ethiopia
Foltýnová, Veronika ; Novotný, Josef (advisor) ; Peštová, Michaela (referee)
This thesis aims to address factors affecting the sustainability of development projects focusing on water supply in Ethiopia. The thesis identifies main dimensions of sustainability and examines factors within them and their impact on long-term functionality of the studied interventions. The research focuses on the (un)sustainability of the selected water supply projects in Sidama and Alaba, Ethiopia. Ten water supply systems constructed under three projects supported from the Czech development cooperation were examined. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews and direct observations of analyzed water systems. The interviews were conducted with experts, representatives of the implementing organization, representatives of water institutions in Ethiopia (Woreda Water Offices and WASH Committees) and recipients of the interventions, i.e. users of the water supply systems. This was supplemented by the analysis of project documentation. Field research in Ethiopia was conducted in November 2020 and lasted four weeks. The results showed ongoing long-term functionality with only minor problems in the majority of studied systems. One system was nonfunctional at the time of visit and two systems were facing serious problems. The sustainability of studied systems was affected mainly by...
Using Machine Learning Techniques In The Visual Detection Of Starlings In Vineyards
Novotný, Josef
This paper deals with the visual detection of starlings. The aim is to design an earlywarning detection system that protects crops from flocks of starlings. This system uses computervision and machine learning algorithms. In the first phase, the activity in the vineyard was collected.Further, the neural network model using a cloud-based AutoML platform was trained and evaluated.The final classifier distinguishes objects into several categories. These categories include individualbirds, flocks, and various unintended objects such as flies and bees. Overall, the flock detectionalgorithm achieved 89 % accuracy and 94% recall.
Detection of Pilot Inattention
Novotný, Josef ; Mekyska, Jiří (referee) ; Smékal, Zdeněk (advisor)
This master thesis deals with the issue of pilot inattention and proposes a design of a system for detecting inattention of general aviation pilots. Inattention belongs to one of the human-caused errors that currently contribute to the most common causes of aviation accidents. The theoretical part deals with the definition of inattention, compares different aviation categories based on flight rules, and contains a search of detection methods. The practical part of the work deals with the selection of suitable sensors, data collection, and implementation of detection algorithms. In this thesis, two different approaches were chosen. The first implementing machine learning using the RUSBoost classifier, which detects states of attention and distraction. The second approach represents the design of a system for detecting pilot inattention based on a set of rules specified in the CLIPS expert system.
Indian Partition - life histories in the context of geopolitical developments
Mubeenová, Geti ; Novotný, Josef (advisor) ; Hons, Pavel (referee)
The following thesis focuses on the long-term consequences of Partition of India on a micro-level. The thesis examines the life-history of a family that has been spatially divided owing to the decision of some family members who decided to migrate from India to Pakistan. Current, and past familial relations as well as the relationship of the spatially displaced family, specifically focusing on the relationship of the Indo-Pakistani family parts have been analysed. The life history is understood as a possible way how to explain Partition. Partition is presented in its broader historical-geographical context, specifically, the decolonization of the Indian subcontinent. The thesis incorporates selected approaches that establish a multi-dimensional framework and its interactions. The critical geopolitical approach explains the political standpoints of former political leaders as well as preconditions of Partition. The New histories approach gives way to personal spoken historical testimonies of family members in both countries, that apply nationalised representations of Partition and family ties. Additionally, feminist perspectives insight into how all three generations of the family understand and perceive topics important to the family's history, including how do they define 'home'. From a long-term...
The Inclusion of the Syrian Refugees in the Jordanian Labour Market
Kvasničková, Kristýna ; Novotný, Josef (advisor) ; Daniel, Jan (referee)
This thesis aims to look at the inclusion of the Syrian refugees in the Jordanian labour market. By using a theory of planned behaviour as a framework combined with other development theories, the thesis defines three research questions: What are the livelihood strategies of the Syrian refugees? What are the intentions of the Syrian refugees to obtain a work permit? And what are the obstacles the Syrian refugees face in the Jordanian labour market? After addressing these question, the thesis looks at the main project of the Jordnanian and international cooperation, for including the Syrian refugees into the labour market ("The Jordan Compact") and examines it through three chosen development approaches that focus on the individual development though different objectives: The Basic Needs Approach, Human-Rights Based Approach, and the Capabilities Approach. The data has been collected through a qualitative research conducted in Jordan in August 2019 and in February 2020. Through 18 interviews with the Syrian refugees and five additional interviews with the local researchers, and UNHCR and ministry workers. The results show that the Syrian refugees asked in the interviews showed a small intention to obtain a work permit and preferred one of the other livelihood strategies, especially staying in the...
Transnational links, integration, and influence of Ethiopian diaspora on Ethiopian development
Gebrekidan, Hirut Assefa ; Novotný, Josef (advisor) ; Janurová, Kristýna (referee)
Tato práce si klade za cíl prozkoumat vliv Etiopanů žijících v zahraničí na rozvoj jejich domovské země, jejich vliv na nedávné politické změny a zároveň konfrontovat názory Etiopanů v zahraničí (dále označováni jako diaspora) s podobnou skupinou respondentů žijících trvale v Etiopii. Kromě toho také zkoumá transnacionální vazby a migrační a integrační zkušenosti Etiopanů v zahraničí a migrační plányvzorku respondentů žijících v Etiopii. Výzkum je založen na internetovém dotazníkovém šetření mezi 137 respondenty, kteří byli identifikováni prostřednictvím autorčiny sociální sítě (tzn. záměrný výběr). Vzorek respondentů byl složen z těch, kteří žijí v zahraničí v Západních zemích (N = 75) a těch, kteří žijí v Etiopii. (N=62). Výzkum ukázal, že navzdory uváděné ochotě podílet se na rozvoji domovské země, je účast diaspory na oficiálních aktivitách přispívajících k ekonomickému rozvoji Etiopie poměrně malá, byť větší část respondentů potvrdila poskytování remitencí svým rodinám v Etiopii (finančních, hmotných i sociálních). Identifikován byl významný vnímaný vliv diaspory na probíhající politickou transformaci země i etnickou mobilizaci (včetně etnických tenzí). Vedle dalších poznatků výzkum také naznačil, že respondenti žijící v zahraničí se cítí být dobře integrováni, udržují transnacionální vazby na...

Education in the geographical context of the Ladakh's village Mulbeck
Kalusová, Adéla ; Novotný, Josef (advisor) ; Kolomazníková, Jana (referee)
This diploma thesis is focused on primary education in India with own empirical case study of the village of Mulbeck in the region of Ladakh in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Author explored the role of education in the lives of local residents and the function of the Spring Dales Public School in the specific context of the local cultural and natural environment. Own field research was realized through the author's stay in the village as a volunteer placement organized by an NGO Brontosauři in the Himalayas that supports the Spring Dale Public School. The collection of data took place during July 2017. The author conducted 31 semi-structured interviews with various local agents who are directly or indirectly involved in the school functioning. The interviews were analyzed using qualitative research methods. The findings from interviews suggested that both the access and perceived importance of education has change significantly, while it is not only considered as a major factor of a quality employment but of the general development of Mulbeck. This is related to structural changes in employment with more people looking for a work in the tertiary sector. Modernization and structural change, nevertheless, do not seem to weaken perceived importance of traditions and local culture but, on the...
