EThekwini shares Informal Economy concepts with Somalia
EThekwini Municipality’s dynamic informal economy sector plays a pertinent role in sustaining the livelihoods of the unemployed as it encourages entrepreneurship and alleviates poverty. In the spirit of city to city learning and knowledge sharing, the Municipal Institute of Learning (MILE) in partnership with eThekwini’s Business Support and Markets Unit, UN-Habitat, United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) hosted its 4th Informal Economy Learning Exchange with a delegation from Mogadishu, Somalia at the Moses Mabhida Stadium from 25th-27th January 2017.
The learning event aimed to contribute towards the successful operation of markets in Mogadishu by enhancing the understanding of market management, operation and policy for participants using eThekwini Municipality as a case study. 

The Learning Exchange featured study tours of markets in eThekwini Municipality such as the Durban Fresh Produce Market, South Clairwood Business Hive, Ezimbuzini Herb and Goat Hive, KwaMnyandu, Cato Manor Markets, Bangladesh Market and other prominent markets across the City. Participants witnessed first-hand the infrastructure the City has in place to assist informal traders. 

With facilitated discussion sessions led by MILE and informative presentations by eThekwini’s Business Support and Markets team, the learning event will enable the Benadir Regional Administrations with capacity to effectively and efficiently manage markets in Mogadishu.  

EThekwini through its Knowledge Management initiative MILE uses platforms such as Learning Exchanges and Peer to Peer Learning Exchanges to share knowledge and good practices to enhance the capacity of local government practitioners within the African continent.
