The Wits-TUB-UNILAG Urban Lab Programme is built on a partnership agreement between the University of the Witwatersrand (Wits), the University of Lagos (UNILAG) and the Technische Universität Berlin (TUB).
This collaboration aims to help the continent of Sub-Saharan Africa execute the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of 2015 and the New Urban Agenda (NUA) of 2016. The New Urban Agenda (NUA), in particular, asks for a “Urban Paradigm Shift” that includes integrated approaches to urban planning and management. It acknowledges the importance of institutional capacity development as a key “enabling condition.”
The Wits-TUB-UNILAG Urban Lab makes its contribution through a ‘Postgraduate SDG School’, in the form of an enhancement of the postgraduate training offered in the School of Architecture and Planning at Wits (a leading university on this continent) in close collaboration with the Habitat Unit at TUB and Centre for Housing and Sustainable Development at UNILAG.
The Wits-TUB-UNILAG Urban Lab programme is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) from 2016 to 2020. An extension of the programme has been granted from 2021 to 2025.
