Reforming Urban Laws in Africa

A Practical Guide

Reforming Urban Laws in Africa, A Practical Guide, was written by Stephen Berrisford and the late Patrick McAuslan. It provides hands-on guidance to officials, practitioners and researchers working on the urgent task of improving, modernising and rationalising urban legislation in the Sub-Saharan region. 

A 12-episode series of short lectures introducing the different aspects of the guide can be found on the African Centre for Cities website or on the YouTube Channel.  

The guide is available for download from the ACC site in English [2.8MB], Portguese [2.7MB] and French [3.6MB].

    A very worthwhile resource for people drafting policy and legislation in these contexts.
