Sustainable River-based Urban Planning for Sub-Saharan Africa
Case studies

This document complements ICLEI Africa’s guidelines entitled ‘Sustainable River-based Urban Planning Guideline for Sub-Saharan African Cities’. Produced as part of ICLEI’s four year flagship project Urban Natural Assets for Africa: Rivers for Life (UNA Rivers) and funded by SwedBio (which operates from the Stockholm Resilience Centre), both were written in support of its objective of mainstreaming biodiversity and ecosystem services into land use planning and local government decision-making processes around urban river systems. It is intended that this be achieved by improving coordination and community-based activation, strengthening sustainability and resilience, enhancing human well-being and alleviating poverty. The project cities are: Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), Lilongwe (Malawi) and Dar es Salaam (Tanzania).
