The Addis Ababa Urban Age Task Force is a partnership between the Addis Ababa City Plan and Development Commission (AACPDC), LSE Cities at the London School of Economics and Political Science, the Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft, and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. The Addis Ababa Urban Age Task Force (AAUATF) supports the City of Addis Ababa in advancing its strategic development agenda by identifying pilots for implementing the Addis Ababa Structure Plan 2017 – 2027.
