Think Piece: Exploring perspectives that underpin decisions for southern African urban development – Insights from Blantyre, Malawi

This think piece presents the findings and results of a stakeholders’ think tank workshop for the Innovation Fund research project for Blantyre City: Exploring values and perspectives that underpin the development of African cities. It features stakeholder level of engagement and participation in the decision making for the city, as well as their views on the purported waste-to-energy value chain that the city would want to embark on by way of bringing the private sector on board to invest in the venture. This potential decision was used as a case study to explore values and perspectives.
