The Commonwealth Association of Planners seeks to focus and develop the skills of urban and regional planners across the Commonwealth to meet the challenges of urbanisation and the sustainable development of human settlements.
CAP produces a regular newsletter to share member activities and actions. It carries news items and occasional longer articles. It keeps members and friends of CAP in touch. It is available electronically.
CAP holds conferences where ideas and practical experiences can be shared and compared. Papers presented at these events, together with longer articles from the Newsletter are published.
CAP has links with its members, with other professional associations, and with non-governmental organisations involved in the struggle to improve human settlements, to alleviate poverty and to move towards sustainable development. CAP welcomes opportunities to participate in activities which bring together planners and communities and /or other professionals.
