Groundbreaking agreement signed by UNZA and PPHPZ

18 Dec 2013

As part of the establishment of a new Master of Spatial Planning degree at the University of Zambia (UNZA) in Lusaka, the University has been building links with Slum/Shack Dwellers International (SDI) and its local affiliate, People's Process on Housing and Poverty in Zambia (PPHPZ).

UNZA and PPHPZ have previously collaborated in preparing a proposal for a Comic Relief grant for a community-led slum upgrading programme in Lusaka. This grant was awarded in August 2013.

In December 2013, UNZA and PPHPZ cemented this partnership through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding.

As part of this ground-breaking agreement, UNZA and PPHPZ have committed to jointly planning studio projects for the Master of Spatial Planning programme, and to allowing PPHPZ staff and residents of informal settlements to give inputs and lectures to students.
