Akanya’s core mission is to bring customised, integrated, and sustainable local solutions to the development and urban management dilemmas facing South Africa today. We work alongside our clients, network partners and the community to harness an innovative development model, which is not only based on spatial planning principles, but which also makes use of financial and economic management tools.
Key to the way in which we operate is our beliefs that:
- The ability to see the ‘bigger picture’ is not a nice-to-have, it is essential to the feasibility of any future-focused plan.
- The only sustainable solutions are community-driven solutions.
- Our planning should be both visionary and practical.
- Relationship is everything – from our clients and joint venture partners, to the communities where we work.
