Peter Griffiths contributes to 2017 Foresight Africa report

12 January 2017

Peter Griffiths, Managing Editor of LSE Cities, has contributed a chapter to the new Brookings Institution report: Foresight Africa: Top priorities for the continent in 2017. Chapter 4 addresses Africa’s approach to the New Urban Agenda emerging from the Habitat III conference in Quito, Ecuador, in October 2016. It outlines possibilities for future urbanisation across the continent, and the role of the African Union in leading, rather than following on global policy initiatives. The chapter can be accessed here.
