Urban AfricaThe International New Town Institute (INTI) is proud to announce its program for the conference “Urban Africa: new strategies for the world’s fastest urbanizing continent” and cordially invites you to join. Professionals from Europe and Africa present their visions on the current urban development in Africa. The event will be a crash course for anyone working or interested in Africa. 

Urban Africa is an initiative organized by INTI, in cooperation with the African Studies Centre, Leiden (ASC), the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies at Erasmus University (IHS). INTI has previously worked with IHS in China on the New New Towns research program and the ASC have a long history of partnership. This event, however, is the first collaboration among all three partners, and represents their complimentary expertise and deep commitment to pursuing a sustainable urban future in Africa.
