Attesting to the fact that Isandla Institute is recognised for combining expertise in urban development with strong logistical and events management competencies, the organisation was approached to coordinate another regional event in February 2009. On 17-19 February 2009, UN-Habitat, SIDA and the African Centre for Cities hosted the Sustainable Urban Development Network (SUD-Net) Workshop in Cape Town. The purpose of the event was to discuss the role and functioning of SUD-Net, a global knowledge network on sustainable urban development initiated by UN-Habitat, and to establish SUD-Net Africa. The workshop was attended by just over 40 participants from nine (largely Anglophone) African countries, representing municipalities, planning institutions and associations, NGOs and academic institutions. It culminated in the formal launch of the African chapter of SUD-Net. For the workshop report click here.
