Modern Heritage of Africa / Modern Heritage in the Anthropocene (MoHoA)
MoHoA is a global network of academics and practitioners interested in and engaged with modern heritage of Africa. The initiative is predicated on the fact that over the next 30 years, African cities will experience the highest rates of urbanisation globally. Like its population, the continent’s cities are comparatively young, and possess high concentrations of outstanding modern heritage, which is under-researched in academia, under-valued in its potential to meet key targets set by the UN SDGs, and under-represented in terms of UNESCO World Heritage (WH) List (Italy and Spain together boast more cultural WH Sites than Africa 103/96). Using the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), UNHabitat’s New Urban Agenda, African Union Agenda 2063, and UNESCO’s Recommendation on Historic Urban Landscapes (HUL), this collaborative interdisciplinary initiative seeks to recast modern heritage for the twenty-first century. Faced with the anthropogenic challenges of rapid urbanisation, climate change and biodiversity loss, it aims to create a sustainable and equitable model for heritage practice by strengthening professional networks, building capacity regionally and developing knowledge globally.
