dc.description.abstractEnglish: To achieve sustainable development in any society the educational system must be responsive to the dynamics of that society. This article discusses issues on the level of training on informality in African planning schools with emphasis on the Lagos, Nigeria situation. The article reviews the concept of informality, the challenges, the quantum of training in planning schools curricula on issues relating to the informal sector, legislative tools available to tackle the phenomena, among others. The article concludes that there is currently inadequate training and paucity of legislation to guide the integration of the informal sector into the urban system in the study area. In the light of these findings, the need for responsive planning education curriculum in Africa is imperative. There is the need to teach on issues concerning the sporadic emergence of the informal sector in the African urban landscape. This is one of the major consequences of 21st-century African urban growth. Unfortunately, African planning schools curricula are based on standards of developed countries; thus formal training on planning solutions for the informal sector are not well entrenched, nor adequate planning regulations provided to integrate the informal sector into land use. To achieve a sustainable city landscape this article recommends the need to introduce courses such as informality, community engagement, social mobilisation, participatory planning, among others, in planning curricular. This will go a long way in improving the skills of planners towards resolving the challenges posed by the sporadic phenomena of the informal sector in Nigerian cities.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractAfrikaans: Om volhoubare ontwikkeling in enige gemeenskap te bereik moet die onderrigsisteem reageer op die dinamika van die gemeenskap. Hierdie artikel bespreek probleme oor die vlak van onderrig op informaliteit in beplanningskole in Afrika met die klem op die situasie in Lagos, Nigerië. Die artikel ondersoek die konsep van informaliteit, die uitdagings, die omvang van opleiding in beplanningskolekurrikula oor onder andere probleme rakende die informele sektor asook beskikbare wetlike hulpmiddels om die uitdaging aan te pak. Ten slotte dui die artikel aan dat daar tans onvoldoende opleiding en gebrek aan wetgewing is om die integrasie van die informele sektor na die stedelike sisteem in die studiegebied te lei. Gesien in die lig van hierdie bevindinge is die behoefte aan responsiewe beplanningsonderrigkurrikula in Afrika noodsaaklik. Daar is ’n behoefte om onderrig te gee oor probleme rakende die sporadiese verskyning van die informele sektor in die Afrika stedelike landskap. Hierdie is een van die belangrikste gevolge van stedelike groei in Afrika van die 21ste eeu. Ongelukkig is beplanningskole in Afrika se kurrikula gebaseer op ontwikkelende lande se standaarde en dus is formele opleiding oor beplanningsoplossings in die informele sektor nie goed gevestig nie en is daar ook nie voldoende beplanningsregulasies verskaf om die informele sektor in grondgebruik te integreer nie. Om ’n volhoubare stadslandskap te behaal, beveel hierdie artikel aan dat die behoefte om kursusse soos informaliteit, gemeenskapbetrokkenheid, sosiale mobilisasie en deelnemende beplanning in beplanningskurrikula opgeneem moet word. Dit sal baie help om die vaardighede van beplanners in die oplossing van uitdadings wat deur die sporadiese verskynsels van die informele sektor in Nigeriese stede veroorsaak is, op te los.af
