Sustainable Urban Development in Africa.



Abstract / Resumo

«Africa is looking forward to the attainment of Agenda 2063, a long term regional agenda to achieve development in five decades. This process will be supported by Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the outcome of HABITAT III, which will define the New Urban Agenda for the next 20 years. In this context sustainable urbanization and human settlements development must unlock the benefits of economic agglomerations, realize the force of economic clusters for competitiveness and enhanced productivity by putting the levers of sustainable urbanization in place. This paper provides information and suggestion on how sustainable urban development in Africa can serve as an enabler in attaining the desired structural transformation, increased prosperity and peaceful co-existence within the framework of Agenda 2063.» (In UN-HABITAT)

Urban Planning in Lusophone African Countries



                
 Reviews: ‘Carlos Nunes Silva’s edited volume gives an account of urban planning in Lusophone African cities for an Anglophone readership for the first time. It thereby contributes to overcoming the linguistic barriers that constrain planning discourse and practice in Africa. This makes it an important book for those interested in comparing colonial planning legacies and understanding their on-going impact on Africa’s cities.’
Lindsay Bremner, University of Westminster, UK

'Have you ever wondered how history and culture shape current and future urban patterns and forms? Now you have a key reference with some good pointers and relevant answers from a range of well researched and rich experiences. This easy-to-read volume is a must for anyone aiming at understanding the urban planning legacies in Lusophone African countries and beyond. This publication will go down as one of the rare urban planning source books on Lusophone countries available to English-speaking audiences. In that way, it fills a huge language and scientific gap.'
Remy Sietchiping, UN-Habitat, Nairobi, Kenya

‘The thematic chapters of this important volume blaze a trail in many respects. It is the first major comprehensive text in English on colonial and post-colonial urban planning in Lusophone African countries. Together, the chapters do a marvellous job of interrogating the avowed and covert aims of colonial and contemporary urban planning in these countries. It is a “must-read” for anyone with an interest in modernist urban planning from historical and contemporary perspectives. The editor must be commended for assembling the respected team of scholars that contributed to the volume.’
Ambe Njoh, University of South Florida, USA
