Executive Report - African Perspectives PrepCon, UN, Addis Ababa, February 25th-27th 2018, Event jointly organised by the TU Delft Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment and Ethiopian Institute of Architecture, Building Construction and City Development (EiABC).

The Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment of the Delft University of Technology is launching the ‘A is for AFRICA’ initiative, in which research, education and cooperation come together under one umbrella. This initiative articulates endeavours in three areas (research, education and cooperation) in order to maximise TU Delft’s positive impact on African urbanisation. The organisation of this PrepCon (preparatory conference) is the first step in this process. In the PrepCon, scholars and practitioners concerned with questions related to African urbanisation came together for two days in January 2018 to discuss the following questions:
What are challenges associated with contemporary African urbanisation?
How can TU Delft engage with African institutions in order to produce a positive impact on African urbanisation?
What are on-going educational experiences and research projects from which we could learn together
