oa East African Geographical Review - East African record The Kampala-Mengo regional planning mission
Following a recommendation by the United Nations Urban Planning Mission. who were in Kampala-Mengo in 1963-64, the Uganda Government sought external technical assistance for the. purpose of examining the future physical development of the Kampala-Mengo Region. This assistance has been provided by the United Nations Technical Assistance Bureau and the British Government. The personnel provided form a mission who are attached to and work closely with the Department of Town and Regional Planning. There are five members of the Kampala-Mengo Regional Planning Mission, the first arriving in September 1964 and the last due to depart towards the end of 1966. Several disciplines are represented including physical planning. architecture, economics. social sciences and statistics. Additional to the external members there are two Ugandans. a geographer and a sociologist. The broad composition of the mission marks an important departure from the former limited concept of town planning by architects and civil engineers. Nevertheless the team could profitably be expanded further to include a transportation engineer and a public health engineer.
