20 Year Reflections
The South African Planning Institute (SAPI) was formed on 1 July 1996 through the amalgamation of the South African Institute of Town and Regional Planners (SAITRP) and the Development Planning Association of South Africa (DPASA).
This reflection of the 20 year journey taken by the leaders and members of SAPI is a tribute to the seless eorts made to build an independent and connected organisation.
20 years seems like a long time but it is rather short in the context of building a new organisation during a momentous period in South Africa, a period when the country was making a transition from apartheid to democracy.
