Urban and Housing Development
Urbanisation in most of Africa is moving at a very fast pace, especially south of the Sahara. Infrastructure and housing provisions, water & waste management, energy & other utilities supply shortages, traffic congestion, environmental health problems, limited green spaces, extreme poverty, social security and public safety problems place many burdens on people. With a consistent influx of people into African cities, there is a need for a central focus on sustainability, urban planning, regeneration, slum rehabilitation and low-income housing provision.
This Urban & Housing Development large scale event will be a one-stop platform that will encapsulate cutting-edge issues, strategic solutions, investment strategies and pertinent case studies in urban planning, infrastructure and housing development. A vision of this scale can only be achieved by implementing your ideas and experiences into action; so whether you are a driver or enabler towards urban and housing projects, you will find this highly anticipated Urban and Housing Development large scale event an excellent platform to network, exchange ideas, seek business opportunities and to tap into the experience of key industry leaders.
Tailor-make your own programme by selecting from any of these streams:
Day 1 and 2
Stream 1: Urban Planning & Management
Stream 2: Infrastructure Development
