Planning Africa Conference 2018

SAPI proudly announces that registrations for the 8th Planning Africa Conference themed “The Making of Modern African Cities” are open at www.planningafrica.org.za.  


The conference will take place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre on 14-18 October 2018.


The theme ‘The Making the Modern African Cities’ is intended to drive debate towards meaningful solutions. The question to be answered is what exactly does ‘modern’ mean?  Is it a replication of other cities globally, or are there unique attributes to this term in the African context?  What should ‘modern’ look like when facing pressures such as resilience, right to the city, accommodation of informality, to name a few?


Sub-themes for conference papers are: Social Justice and the Right to the City, Inclusive and Transformative Growth, Sustainable and Resilient Cities, Sustainable Neighbourhoods and Place- making, Shelter and Meeting Basic Needs, Public Transport and Transit Oriented Development and Sustainable Urban Management.


To submit an abstract, visit the Planning Africa Website www.planningafrica.org.za The closing date for abstracts is 31 October 2017.


SAPI is seeking the participation of planners, members of the built environment and allied disciplines as well as academics to participate as peer reviewers to comment on abstracts and papers received.
