Ceasefire in Angola begins

By Richard Dowden in London, and - Tony Allen-Mills in Pretoria
South Africa, Cuba and Angola yesterday announced a formal cessation of hostilities in the Namibian border conflict that has scarred the region for most of the last two decades. SWAPO, the Namibian nationalist movement, has agreed to abide by the ceasefire. UNITA, the Angolan rebel movement, has not. The ceasefire, which will take effect immediately, is the next logical step in the painstaking but increasingly promising negotiating process that began in London in May.

A burgeoning literature is looking into the processes and actors involved in the
adoption and emulation of best practices and models of urban policy and development in aspiring world-class cities across the globe. It shows how over the past decades cities have become increasingly entrepreneurial, outward-looking and plugged into transnational networks of urban policymaking. This has resulted in the fast-paced circulation of policies, often with the aim of attracting investment and making cities more competitive (McCann and Ward, 2011; Peck and Theodore, 2015

Imprensa Internacional Sobre Angola Agosto – Dezembro 2000

LISBONNE, 28 déc (AFP) - Le groupe pétrolier italien AGIP a entamé le forage de quatre puits du bloc 25 du offshore angolais, a annoncé jeudi à Benguela (Angola), Gisela Bessa, responsable du groupe. Selon Gisela Bessa, citée par l'agence angolaise Angop, les forages ont lieu à 70 et à 100 km de la côte, entre les villes de Lobito et Benguela, au sud-ouest de Luanda. La continuité de l'exploration de pétrole dans ce bloc dépendra, selon ce responsable du groupe italien, des résultats qui seront connus fin janvier sur la quantité et la qualité du pétrole. Le coût des travaux de forage en eau profonde, opérés à partir du navire scientifique "Caipem-
1000-Saip", est estimé à 2,5 milliards de dollars, selon la même source.

2014 Angola Civil Society Sustainability Index

The Index covers civil society organizations (CSOs) covering both advances and setbacks in seven key components or “dimensions” of the sustainability of the civil society sector: legal environment, organizational capacity, financial viability, advocacy, service provision, infrastructure, and public image.

Angola is the most rapidly urbanizing country in southern Africa and experienced the world’s highest average annual economic growth between 2001 and 2010, mainly because of revenues from oil and diamonds. In 2014 income distribution remained extremely unequal, and the country produced very little in terms of manufactured goods. The cost of living remained very high, especially in the capital city of Luanda. However, the precipitous fall in the price of oil in 2014 had a massive effect on public spending, especially for social development. The government introduced several rounds of budget cuts and spending freezes, with more predicted to follow in 2015. Many international organizations have recently withdrawn from Angola and most national CSOs depended on foreign funding. Many CSOs saw their sources of income disappear. It is estimated that fewer than 10 percent of registered CSOs implemented projects in 2014.

In 2014 a new policy for the country’s administrative divisions was introduced. Among other changes, a new layer of administrators emerged, which delayed the implementation of some activities. In addition, CSO participation in citizens’ councils (CACS) was affected, as municipalities were not yet functioning and therefore CACS activities were confined to the district level.

Ordering power? The Politics of State-led Housing Delivery Under Authoritarianism – The Case of Luanda, Angola

From Bangkok to Rio de Janeiro, urban areas in the global South have experienced steady expansion in recent decades. Informal settlements on the peripheries of Johannesburg or Jakarta have swelled to accommodate rural migrants or foreigners searching for work or better services. Almost overnight, satellite cities and peri-urban developments in Beijing and Luanda have materialised to house an emerging middle class. In urban areas as diverse as Addis Ababa and Dubai, city building projects showcasing a country’s world class aspirations or its resource wealth have multiplied (Schindler, 2015).

Urban Governance and Turning African Ci

This working paper presents the findings of the study on the process to turn around the city of Luanda, the capital of Angola.1 Decades of civil war that followed the country’s independence in 1975 saw millions of people internally displaced, large areas mined and most of the country’s physical, economic and social infrastructure and services destroyed or degraded. Although most of the conflict took place in the countryside, the impact was felt in Luanda, the main recipient of the massive influx of displaced people seeking safety. The failure to invest in the infrastructure needed to handle this influx resulted in the severe degradation of the city’s urban core and the growth of sprawling slums.
