Rural to Urban Migration and Urban Expansion Planning
Join Cities Alliance, the NYU Marron Institute of Urban Management and Jigjiga University for a Regional Dialogue, "Rural to Urban Migration and Urban Expansion Planning," November 23 and 24 from 9:30AM East Africa Time.
The regional dialogue is supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation. It will convene international experts and ministerial and city stakeholders from Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, and Uganda to discuss planning approaches which make room for a growing urban population in secondary cities. This approach was pioneered by NYU Marron Institute (NYU Stern Urbanization Project) and the Government of Ethiopia in a group of Ethiopian secondary cities and is now being expanded to include additional cities in Uganda and Somalia.
Cities in the developing world are expected to add approximately 2 billion people in the next 30 years. This will drive horizontal growth as cities consume more land to accommodate these new residents. Making room for urban expansion plays a critical role in accommodating rural to urban migrants by helping secondary cities with limited resources lay out new areas for growth, before development happens.
