Timetable & learning outcomes

Course content will provide participants with a critical and complementary analysis of the evolution of African cities over the past 20 years, as well as the challenges and opportunities for the next ten years in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) agenda.

The program offers a variety of learning experiences, including:

› Lectures and discussions with experts on major development issues for African cities over the next ten years;

› Multi- and interdisciplinary discussions and debates on diverse policy and development sectors (health, land, food security, urban governance, technology, climate and environment, etc.) and on interventions towards reaching the SDGs in these fields;

› Collaboration within a multidisciplinary group on a multidisciplinary project (health, demographics, economics, political approaches) that addresses a key topic for African cities in 2030. 

Participants will have access to the most recent data and knowledge, as well as fresh insights into public policy processes, development challenges, and multidisciplinary interventions aiming to reach the SDGs in African contexts. They will also have the opportunity to interact and connect with the experts, researchers and professors present.

A certificate of participation will be awarded to students upon completion of the course.
