Project outline

Cape Town was selected as one of 19 cities in the Future Global Cities Programme funded through the Prosperity Fund of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), UK Government and has two phases: 1) a strategic development phase (this current phase) and 2) implementation phase. The programme is being implemented by the UN Habitat’s Urban Planning and Design Lab (UPD-LAB) in close collaboration with the Climate Change Planning Unit (CCPU). The Academic Partner in this programme is the International Growth Centre (IGC) run by London School of Economics and Oxford University and the Professional Partner in the United Kingdom Built Environment Advisory Group (UK BEAG) and its global networks of associations and registered professionals. We are supporting Akanya (Johan Olivier) who was appointed as the Local City Specialist during the Strategic Development Phase.
