AAM in Community Based Processes forum Kigali on 15th and 16th of February 2023
On the 15th and 16th of February we were at Kigali Community Based Processes forum!
The even was co-organised by Enabel, the University of Rwanda and the Ministry of Infrastructure of the Republic of Rwanda and was held in the Faculty of Architecture and Environmental Design of the University of Rwanda.
The overall objectives of the Forum were:
To Reinforce and widen the community of practice and ownership around the Manifesto.
To widen participation from the private sector, academia, development and governmental partners in East Africa.
To stimulate the wider application of community-based processes, making interventions more sustainable in both socio-economic and environmental aspects.
AAmatters were one of the many and very interesting presentations during this exciting weekend.
The presentations and discussion were divided under three main categories:
Construction / Community Driven Processes for Climate Responsive Design
Urbanism / Upgrading unplanned settlements
Space Management / Homegrown solutions

Being part of the Forum was a fruitful, interesting and challenging experience.
We hope that this exchange of experiences and knowledge will widen the participation from the private sector, academia, development and governmental partners in East Africa.
