Dar Exchange Program for DURP Students
UIP partially sponsored a team of students from DURP and 2 staff for an exchange visit to Ardhi University’s, Department of Urban Regional Planning. One operational goal of UIP is to form an Africa region planning network by linking the activities of the various planning schools to build meaningful synergies. It is hoped that through this UIP and its associates will transform into a formidable planning and innovation hub. A lasting collaboration between the 2 departments and expansion to other East African Planning Schools is among the ultimate goals of the program. The exchange program was undertaken in a view to share planning ideas within the East Africa Planning Schools and explore various solutions to the development challenges facing countries in East African region.
