Abstract [en]

This  paper  aims  to  examine  the  value  of  cultural  considerations  in  urban  planning  and  to contribute to the current discussion on Botswana’s planning system. ‘Integrated Conservation’ and  ‘Cultural Planning’,  as  two dominant  international  streams  on  culture  and planning,  are compared with  the  local context of Botswana  to  identify possibilities and  challenges  for  the planning review. The Town and Country Planning Act, in addition to two case study areas, is presented  to  highlight  the Botswanan  context. The  results  reveal  a distinct  need  for  a  shift from  ‘planning  for  culture’  to  ‘cultural  institutionalisation’,  where  the  traditional  division between  ‘bottom-up’ and  ‘top-down’ urban development  tendencies  is  challenged  to allow a wider scale of actors and interests to interact deliberately rather than engage.
