It’s a wrap! The SCI Network Africa Program comes to an end

Sustainable Cities wishes to express our sincere thanks to everyone who has contributed to the remarkable success of our SCI Network Africa Program!

At the end of October 2012, our contract and funding provided by the Canadian International Development Agency came to an end. Since then, we have spent some time taking stock of achievements, assessing progress and discussing future opportunities.

We can confidently and proudly say that the success of this project exceeded all of our expectations. Active in Dakar, Senegal, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and Durban, South Africa, many dedicated people worked together to develop stronger processes and outcomes for improving the quality of life for local citizens.

Focusing on the promotion of good governance, environmental sustainability and the transfer of knowledge gained, this project brought cities from around the world together in an alliance that formed lasting bonds and friendships, ignited potent cross-cultural exchanges, and affected all of those involved for the better.

We wish to thank all of our staff and interns, our partner agencies, which include all the local government authorities, Kesho Trust, MILE, Imagine Durban, and the Institut Africain de Gestion Urbaine (IAGU).

Well done, everyone!
