On September 4th we are hosting an opening reception for the exhibition Informal Horizons from 5 pm till 7pm at KADK library, Danneskiold-Samsøes Allé 50, 1434 København K.
The exhibition focuses on current efforts to counter issues relating to informal land ownership in East Africa, along with research on the underlying structures conditioning the informal urban growth.
The majority of the ongoing extensive urbanization of East Africa is informal and occurs beyond the limits of state control and regulatory systems. This development is characterized by lack of urban planning, infrastructure provision and formal rights to the land. Lack of land rights constitute a major issue within urban development in East Africa, as it leads to forced evictions as well as exclusion from public services and citizenship, compromising sustainable development for millions of urban dwellers across the region.
The exhibition is open Monday-Friday from 9am till 7pm until October 11 2019.
The exhibition is made possible with financial supported from CISU – Civilsamfund i Udvikling.
