The South African Planning Institute (SAPI) is proud to host the 5th Planning Africa conference from 17 to 19 September 2012 at the International Convention Centre, Durban, South Africa.
The Conference has grown in stature and relevance. It is now a key knowledge exchange platform for policy makers, development practitioners, planning specialists, and researchers involved in ‘space making’. Unlike many conferences these days, Planning Africa is organized by planners and for planners or people with an interest in the planning field.

The 2012 conference theme is “GROWTH, DEMOCRACY AND INCLUSION: NAVIGATING CONTESTED FUTURES”. The conference this time round will be more focused around the positive power of planning and how to utilize the regulatory tools and instruments at the disposal of Planners to effect necessary spatial and land management transformation. There will be more in-depth plenary level discussion aimed at specific outcomes with a focus on improving effectiveness of practice.
