Ole Stubdrup, a project manager with the Urban and Municipal Development Fund, said African municipalities and those of Northern Europe faced comparable problems.

“This visit should be a source of inspiration for the participants and foster ideas for specific urban infrastructure investments,” he said.

Mayor of Dodoma

The Mayor of Dodoma, Davis Mwamfupe, said the trip was an opportunity to share experiences and consolidate a network of reform-oriented cities. 

“It also paves the way for future projects in our respective cities, as we meet with potential partners and investors,” Mwamfupe said.

The delegation would be conducting field visits and taking part in presentations on water management, waste treatment and e-mobility.

Copenhagen and Malmo

They would also have the opportunity to engage with decision-makers and municipal officials from Copenhagen and Malmo. 

According to the statement, both cities are recognised for their pioneering approaches to balancing sustainable development with quality of life.  

Urban and Municipal Development Fund

The Urban and Municipal Development Fund aims to improve urban quality of life and attract investment for infrastructure by strengthening cities’ technical capacity and planning functions. 

The fund’s approach integrates economic, social and environmental factors.
