Africity Research Project

AfriCity is a collaborative research, teaching and training project. It explores the causes and effects of environmental change and resource use in Sub-Saharan African cities. The project considers rapid social and economic transformation processes and their external and internal drivers, and assesses the barriers for potentials of social adaptability in the context of inequity, risk, and resourcefulness.

This is a four year project from 2017-2021 jointly implemented by the Erlangen University-Germany, Rhodes University-South Africa, Malawi University, Sokoine University and the College of Business Education (CBE), under the sponsorship of Germany Government.
