The Metropolitan Governance in Africa: Right to the Metropolitan City in the framework of the New Urban Agenda and the Agenda 2030

Date of publication
Metropolitan Governance
Type of resources
Based on a pedagogical content designed by Metropolis, this learning program aims to introduce the metropolitan reality and how metropolitan governance with a gender perspective can be the key to face the challenges and threats that surround our metropolises. In addition, the course seeks to present governance models, as well as to emphasise on the importance of the Right to the city in a metropolitan context.

In the second session of this course we addressed the importance of reconsidering the Right to the City in a metropolitan context that reflects the current reality of urban dynamics. We also analysed four different manifestations of the right to the city in the African context: the right to housing; the right to public space; the right to urban security from a feminist perspective; and the right to metropolitan mobility.
