Message of invitation from SAPI President

SAPI is pleased to host the Planning Africa 2024 conference. The conference is taking place when the world is recovering from the effects of COVID 19. The recent disaster caused by heavy flooding and earthquake that took place in parts of South Africa and Morocco respectively, has cautioned us that climate change exists and requires urgent attention. The conference will therefore not only promote the planning profession across all the sectors of planning, but also create an opportunity for Planners to engage and find solutions on these issues. SAPI invites all Planners from all the corner of society to be part of the exciting Planning Africa 2024 conference to be hosted in Kwazulu Natal province.

Dr Johannes Mulaudzi
SAPI President

Message of Invitation from the Planning Africa 2024 Conference Chair

As Chairman responsible for the planning and organization of this exciting conference, I invite planners and built environment  practitioners on behalf of my organizing committee, to register for the Planning Africa Conference 2024.  The 9th Planning Africa Conference marks the mid-point of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda… This is a good time to reflect on how we as a planning fraternity have contributed towards the sustainable urban futures.  

As we enter the post covid era, we are faced with new developmental challenges that we continue to take with us into the 21st Century. These challenges will be address in the conference and I trust that the conference will bring together planners from across the African continent to jointly find opportunities and actions in such challenges.

Peter Gilmore
2024 Conference Chair
