The eThekwini Municipallity and the City of Durban, will host a UPAT Workshop 29 April – 5 May 2018. The topic of this UPAT is “Inner City Financial Urban Development Models and Funding” in Durban.
In 2016 the City of Durban hosted the 52nd ISOCARP annual Congress “Cities we Have vs. Cities we Need”. During this congress, Durban presented its Inner City Spatial Framework Plan and Regeneration Strategy and organised technical tours to the inner city precincts. In 2017 the eThekwini Municipality was bestowed with the ISOCARP Award of Excellence as the Durban Inner City Spatial Framework Plan and Regeneration Strategy provides a comprehensive planning strategy for and with the people who live in the city, and that can set an example for many other cities.
The Durban Inner City Team of eThekwini Municipality has invited ISOCARP to select a team of experts that will assist in the implementation process and financial and cooperation models for the urban transformation and development of the Centrum and Warwick Precincts in Durban Inner City.
The UPAT Team will comprise a total of eight ISOCARP members: the Team Leader, the UPAT Rapporteur, total four senior and young planning professionals, the UPAT Program Coordinator and the Vice President UPATs. This Team will closely work together with a team of planning professionals from the Durban Inner City Team. All team members will write, illustrate and contribute to a dedicated PLAN Magazine that will be presented at the 54th ISOCARP congress in Bodø, Norway, 01-05 October 2018.
ISOCARP members who are interested to participate as Team Leader, UPAT Rapporteur or as one of the senior and young planning professionals are invited to send a letter of intent and a one page CV (resume) to us by email on 21 March 2018 at the latest. However, the sooner we receive your CVs and applications, the better. We start reviewing your CVs and applications as soon as they come in. We hope to be able to notify all applicants of their selection by 28 March 2018.
