“The best thing about the INP programme is the people and the backgrounds of the people that it attracts. The fact that participants come from such different backgrounds says a lot about the course. It cuts across disciplines and attracts people from all sectors, providing you with the methodologies to shift between disciplines and professional expertise and enabling you to provide direction for change."

Rogier van den Berg has worked over 16 years as an architect, urban planner, consultant, academic and at the UN. He has broad experience in 'making cities', and advises national governments, city leaders and private sector in planning processes and design. He set up the Urban Planning and Design Lab at UN-Habitat in Nairobi in 2014. Now the Lab operates in 50 cities across 40 countries.
