Planning professionals encouraged to participate in World Planning Day 2021
Promoting partnerships between government and citizens will be the focus of World Planning Day 2021, set for 8 and 9 November under the theme ‘Strengthening the co-production paradigm in planning’.

The event brings together professional planners and the public annually to look at town planning from a global perspective.

It draws attention to the environmental impact resulting from the development of cities.

EThekwini Municipality, the University of KwaZulu-Natal, the South African Council for Planners, the International Society of City and Regional Planners, the South African Local Government Association and the South African Cities Network have all partnered to host the virtual event.

The City’s Project Executive for the Development Planning Department, Lekha Allopi said over the years, essential instruments that require a critical interface between the people for whom plans are being provided, the planners, as well as the decision makers responsible for funding and implementing these plans, have been established. 

These instruments include the Integrated Development Plan, the Spatial Development Framework, and legislations such as the Spatial Planning and Land Use Management Act (No. 16 of 2013).

“However, the downside of this issue is the poor state of implementation and follow-up on the essential requirements of these infrastructure and services co-production processes utilising the available instruments. Hence, the 2021 World Planning Day explores the variegated methods available in reviewing, testing, and further considering the co-production paradigm in planning in the South African context,” she said. 

Sub-themes under which discussions will be held are Co-production and Urban Infrastructure, Planning and Economic Development, Promoting Healthy Cities and also Building Resilient Cities.
