BEITT Practitioner Profiles

In September 2017, the Built Environment Integration Task Team (BEITT) was re-established, and the South African Cities Network (SACN) launched the built environment integration partnership with Agence Française de Développement (AFD) and the Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA). In establishing the BEITT, we knew we wanted to do three things: place city built environment practitioners at the centre of the programme’s agenda; develop a deeper intelligence on the realities of municipal built environment practice (how do things actually work?); and, ambitiously, start to shift built environment practices.


The BEITT is a community of built environment practitioners who are working together to build a strong network of municipal practice. Four times a year, the BEITT group comes together physically to meet at a venue that embeds us in the built environment realities of our cities.
