Kampala enjoys a unique geography: its numerous hills shape the city’s unique landscape and structure, the shores of Lake Victoria offer leisure and productive opportunities, its fertile soils and tropical climate allow for a rich flora, and its wetlands are precious ecosystems. These valuable assets are nevertheless being threatened by the great challenges that the city is facing. It is expected that Uganda’s capital city will host more than 10 millions inhabitants by 2040. This unprecedented growth is source of environmental threats and has pushed residents to take development on their hands.

Informality in Kampala is not just about housing, it is about transport, economic activities and urban development in general. While informality has obvious costs, it also shows the great resourcefulness and entrepreneurship capacity of its residents.

Les Ateliers and all the participants of the workshop relied on this energy and on the numerous local initiatives to find some perspectives making Kampala a sustainable and resilient capital city.
