Welcome to the Association of African Planning Schools
Welcome to the website of the Association of African Planning Schools (AAPS), a network of tertiary planning schools drawn from across the continent.
The AAPS has a membership of 51 planning institutions, from all regions of Africa. Currently the Association is operating two projects, both funded by the Rockefeller Foundation: the first aims to 'Revitalise Planning Education' in Africa, whilst the second seeks to promote community collaboration in planning education programmes through partnerships with advocacy networks such as SDI and WIEGO. Planning schools that wish to join the network, and participate in these projects, should contact AAPS General Secretary
As part of the implementation of the new Masters in Spatial Planning programme, the University of Zambia has been building links with Slum/Shack Dwellers International and its local affiliate, People's Process on Housing and Poverty in Zambia. In December 2013, UNZA and PPHPZ cemented this partnership through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding. Click HERE to read more about this groundbreaking agreement.
