WHAT'S ABOUT EVENT / what's going on there come and learn

14th -15th October 2015 Conference highlights

• Get centralised base maps and then produce different type of maps for better planning. These maps which are crucially needed are; hydrological maps, environmental, industrial, human settlement, infrastructure, agriculture, tourist and utility maps.
• Start thinking hard about a Public Transport, green mobility system plans and investment for sustainable development and urban planning strategy for East and Central Africa. Transport system should focus on modern seamless light train technologies connecting different spatially interconnected nodes (high density population, industrial, cities, and boarder towns) in the East and Central African region. Radial and grid system are cheap however it was suggested these systems could gradually be out phased since they are based on old technologies.
• Get a blue print for an East and Central African urban planning strategy that will include among others a shared vision about planning human settlements, resource allocation and utilisation, confluences, focusing on key priority areas like border Towns, Industrial locations and production centres. This calls for urban infrastructure investment into rapid Transport system
• Discouraging systematic urban engineering systems but rather focus on organic, integrated and inclusive, liveable urban planning cities and towns
• Start Research to understand how sustainable human settlement will be organised based on the above seamless Green Transport Systems, off-grid technologies and dweller participation. It was resolved to find ways as to how investments could be done using build own Transfer (BOT), Private Public Parternships or other business models
• Urban environmental issues futured prominently. Key areas were pointed out for investment: water, sanitation, lake shore protection, clean water transport systems, solid and liquid urban waste management and transportation, and investing in generation of electricity out of urban waste.
• Reduction of rural population by 70 % could save the environment by reducing use of trees as fuel, reduce land fragmentation and changing land ownership system to mitigate hindrances to planning possibilities derived from different land tenure.
• Get started with Smart Cities to ease, reduce cost and waste in urban planning
• Have the conference annually every Wednesdays and Thursdays of the first week in October partly as a refreshers workshop for your planners, review of the previous urban and infrastructure development in respective countries, introduction to new technologies
• Bring on board and introduction of the much needed private investment in from around the world into the East and Central Africa Urban and Infrastructure project developments.

The 2nd Urban and Infrastructure Development Conference for the East and Central African Region will take place between the 5th – 6th October 2016. The Conference is jointly organised by governmental and independent organisations, Companies in Urban and Infrastructure Development, Integrated Development Research and Consultancy and Kampala School for Integrated Urban Planning (SIUP).
