Urbanafrica.net is an online platform dedicated to communicating about African cities. We share information about the urban experience in Africa, with contributions from journalists, academics, bloggers and those working in the urban sphere. A key objective of urbanafrica.net is the mainstreaming of progressive debates on African urbanism through the stimulation of a dynamic online community. The African Centre for Cities, based at the University of Cape Town, South Africa coordinates urbanafrica.net on behalf of the partnership with the African Urban Research Initiative and Mistra Urban Futures.
