City-to-City Learning In Southern Africa: Lessons for Urban Strategies in the Built Environment
With the 5th Annual City-Academic Research Symposium around the corner, the 16th Built Environment Seminar Series (BESS) took place this morning at the Durban Botanic Gardens Conference Centre with eThekwini Municipality ​Officials and Academia who are part of the City-Academic Partnership engaged in making positive changes in the City. 
 
Hosted by MILE in partnership with the Durban University of Technology’s Urban Futures Centre, the Seminar featured a Keynote presentation by MILE Senior Manager, Dr Sogen Moodley, who recently obtained his PHD. 

Dr Moodley presented his doctoral study which focussed on a United Cities and Local Government (UCLG) case study using the experience of three African cities, Durban in South Africa, Otjiwarongo in Namibia and Mzuzu in Malawi, to shed light on the phenomenon of City-to-City learning. 

The research explored the eThekwini Municipality’s mentorship program with these selected Namibian and Malawian municipalities that begin to inform contemporary learning theory in southern Africa.

During his presentation, Dr Moodley mentioned the background of the Mentorship Programme the importance of cities working together in a sustainable manner.
