Metropolitan Governance in Africa: Peer Learning of local experiences (22 February 2021)
To highlight the challenges that African cities face and how they are overcoming them, Metropolis and UCLG-Africa decided to design the launch of a Learning Program on “Metropolitan Governance in Africa”. Based on a pedagogical content designed by Metropolis, this learning program aims to introduce the metropolitan reality and how metropolitan governance with a gender perspective can be the key to face the challenges and threats that surround our metropolises.
During the session “Peer Learning From Local Experiences” city managers of different African cities and metropolises will participate in a peer review of their local experiences facing the challenges produced by the rapid urban growth and the COVID-19 pandemic, giving a particular mention to the role of digitalisation.
