Physical Planning Research towards MSC in Sustainable Regional Eco-Planning and Design
Physically performed research on the aspects that influence the planning and design of coastal settlements along the west coast of the Red Sea region of East Africa and suggested solutions are forwarded for consideration. The research included environmental, cultural, political and economic investigations of historic and existing influences on the stability of the region. The study required full time physical engagement in all aspects influencing the efforts towards the sustainable redevelopment of the region and involved engagement with international environmental, political and social organizations such as PERSEGA, NOA and UNDP. Phase one of the study earned me the degree of MSC in sustainable cultural eco-planning and design, and is in evaluation for continuity towards earning a PHD in the same subject area at the neighborhood scale.
