Smart Prison Workshop 2019

Governments across Africa are faced with the challenge of accommodating record numbers of prisoners which are now at their highest ever recorded levels. This is driving the development of new build and extension infrastructure projects with a focus on improved prisoner outcomes to reduce recidivism levels. However, with value for money a key consideration for government projects, there is an urgent need for data driven strategies to future proof prison infrastructure to ensure it responds to future demand, the changing needs and demographics of the population, whilst also offering effective and efficient service delivery.

With this in mind, our Smart Prisons Workshop will rethink the current approach to the design and development of prison facilities and explore new strategies that will enable operational efficiency, reduce recidivism rates and respond to the complex needs of a vast and diverse prisoner demographic.
