Program Manager of Sustainable Cities at the South African Cities Network, South Africa

Liteboho Makhele is program manager of Sustainable Cities at the South African Cities Network. She joined the organization in 2017, and her research is focused on city transitions to sustainability, working with South Africa's metropolitan municipalities.

Liteboho's experience spans 17 years in the built environment working in both the public and private sectors at a research institute, an international consulting firm, a government department and a private company, with a focus on applied research, sustainability, governance and urban development. She holds a B.Tech in architectural technology and a bachelor's degree in sustainable development and planning and management from the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa.
