The African Journal of Landscape Architecture (AJLA) came about because of a perceived need for an authoritative journal on landscape architecture that can serve the profession as well as the needs of academia. AJLA is the official journal of IFLA Africa and is committed to stimulating content that promotes an extensive understanding of the field of landscape architecture across the African continent.

Mission of the Journal:

· to promote and enhance the education and practice of landscape architecture, with an emphasis on Africa;

· to provide critical discourse and relevant research, with opportunities for both general and peer-reviewed articles;

· to be cross-disciplinary, encouraging dialogue with related disciplines;

· to promote the purpose, aims and ambition of the African Landscape Convention.

AJLA is an e-journal to facilitate broad circulation among all interested parties, and notably the member associations of IFLA Africa. Two issues are initially planned per year with each issue having a particular theme.

Editorial Panel:

AJLA is guided by an Editorial Panel drawn from IFLA member countries in Africa, currently composed of the following professionals and academics:

Mr Graham Young (South Africa) PrLArch BL, ML Chairman, Co-editor
