This course is designed to enhance the skills and knowledge of the delegates in spatial planning, designing and manage sustainable smart urban cities and the outskirts as a measure of addressing current and future challenges within this field. Hence, the course emphasise more on providing an in – depth understanding on critical issues that drives the decision making process on urban designing to achieve sustainable cities and regions. Not only does it provides the above it goes on to statutory planning, construction processes, property developments, spatial analysis for special projects and sustainability in modern cities and sustainable urban design. This exciting course will provoke the delegates to think beyond urban planning as it brings about the aspect of adaptation to the new-normal because of the prevailing deadly pandemic that may suggest the future acceptable infrastructure within the business and residential setup.

This course is developed to equip delegates with the latest skills and knowledge on inclusivity, social diversity, myths, assumptions and spatial justice and how they impact on urban planning in African cities. The course also expose the delegates to the common contemporary urban planning and spatial policies implemented in African cities especially the current and future work ear – marked for the Sub – Saharan Africa and beyond. This mind-blowing course exposes the delegates to urban development and planning in African cities but mainly focusing on the latest methodologies that are used in planning and implementing sustainable infrastructure that will last longer.

This course is designed to enhance the skills and knowledge covering technical issues on town planning, land appraisal, planning surveys, the analysis and presentation of data and legal procedures, connected with planning processes in general. The course also orients the delegates to urban and regional planning techniques used in problem solving when carrying out projects of its nature. To a broader perspective the course emphasis on planning concepts because it brings about modern strategies that contributes to a social spatial balance within communities, environmental and economic needs, while recognising cultural significance in order to improve our quality of life and create sustainable and enthusiastic neighbourhood.

This course is developed to equip delegates with the skills and knowledge they need to conceptualise disaster risk reduction and urban resilience by constructing durable infrastructure that are resistant to any unforeseen natural disasters. The course also empower the decision making professionals within municipalities and government officials to design and implement strategic plans that mitigates any damage to any urban infrastructure. The course will discuss extensively all the known and speculated hazard information that contributes the decision making process to be incorporated into the four phases of risk management (risk reduction, preparedness, response, and recovery) and the formulation of programs to adapt to health risks and climate change.

This course is developed to equip delegates with skills and knowledge to master innovative methodologies, strategies and designs purposefully to improve the ecological, social, and infrastructural function of city landscaping systems. The course also expose the delegates to analysis and design thinking, and landscape scale approaches that establish ecological functions supporting and improve environmental sustainability by achieving resilient and aesthetic urban designs. The course also exposes delegates to discussions on science –driven and action – oriented approaches to climate adaptation to stay up to date with the changes within the climate.

This course is developed to equip the delegates with skills and knowledge to utilise the Geographical Information Systems (GIS) towards spatial analysis specifically as a planning tool, resource management and sustainable decision making. The course will display the power and ability of GIS to store, retrieve, analyse model and map spatial data in infrastructure management, project beneficiary mapping, service facilities mapping, land use planning, market analysis, impact analysis and utilities management. At the end of this course the delegates will have the ability to make use of the GIS tools to visualise real world features, explore spatial data and analyse maps to communicate information and make decisions.

This course is developed to equip delegates with skills and abilities that are significantly recognised in data manipulation and analysis through the use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) to intensify their knowledge of spatial information science and GIS tools procedures. The course will also develop essential data analysis techniques with increasingly sophisticated spatial analysis capabilities and discussions on real life scenarios of projects that were implemented.

This course is designed to equip delegates with the skills and knowledge to scrutinise the policy context and practical aspects of the planning, funding, provision, and maintenance of urban infrastructure. The delegates will be exposed to different infrastructure financing models and governance structures to foster sustainable urban planning and infrastructure. This course also brings the delegates up to speed in terms of the latest available technology and equipment to implement meet modern infrastructure in the urban areas. Urban management and governance structures to provide urban infrastructure, along with methods for assessing the feasibility of major projects will be discussed.

This course is developed to equip delegates with the skills and knowledge to have an in – depth understanding of integrated sanitation planning, within an urban setting and in informal settlements. The delegates will be exposed to different sanitation planning frameworks as well as different systems and technologies relevant along the sanitation value chain applicable to urban and formal / informal settlements. This course will exhibit why systems’ thinking is crucial for urban environmental sanitation decision making process and how to apply key terminology and important concepts.

This course is developed to equip delegates with skills and knowledge on the environmental landscape through understanding the concepts and determinants of human health, health care systems and services, as well as specific health conditions that matter to town planning. The participants will have the ability to apply the environmental and health concepts in urban and regional planning to an extent of linking public health and urban planning as they are inseparable within the value chain. This course will therefore bring about unique solutions to the challenges faced by town planners, public health specialists and policy – makers to implement positive changes to the population’s health with a deep understanding of how environments have previously nurtured human health and how community planning can foster public health in the future.

This course is designed to equip delegates with skills and knowledge on the development and application of significant considerations for city planners responsible for managing urban infrastructures. The major them of the course is provide an in – depth understanding on the crucial concepts of sustainability, resilience, greening and efficiency. The delegates will also learn how to effectively manage little resource equally within a growing population where energy resources, transport, water, and other municipal and urban services has to be shared. By the end of the course delegates will be equipped with management practices that effectively integrates the processes of urban planning with urban infrastructures planning and management in a growing population.

This course is developed to equip delegates with the knowledge and skills to have an in – depth understanding on the latest infrastructure implemented in other African countries and their consciousness to climate change planning. The course also expose the delegates to different frameworks to cub most of the unforeseen uncertainties to attain urban resilience and adaptation, by using illustrative case studies in different African cities. The course also emphasise on development that mitigates any harm caused by climate change impacts, while maximising the many human development opportunities accompanied by a more resilient future.

This course is designed to equip delegates with the skills and knowledge the best regional governance systems that fosters sustainable development in African countries.
