Network in sub-Saharan Africa

Our network

Connective Cities seeks to establish a network of urban practitioners to foster exchange and learning from practical experiences. The membership will comprise individuals and institutions from the local governments, local government associations, policy makers, private sector, non-state actors and the academia. Connective Cities will:

  1. Provide overall coordination of the network activities
  2. Provide the portal for the dissemination of practice-relevant experience
  3. Identify relevant actors from the region and integrate them in the network
  4. Plan and implement the learning processes as per the themes

Through the network, members will:

  1. Have access to regional and international know-how and to innovations as well as practical experiences on urban transformation processes
  2. Have a channel through which they can seek professional advice on local challenges

Our fokus
