His Highness the Aga Khan, Imam (spiritual leader) of the Ismaili Muslims and Zanzibar’s Chief Minister Shamsi Vuai Nahodha today signed an Agreement of Co-operation to initiate a comprehensive urban rehabilitation proposal for the Seafront Area of Zanzibar’s Stone Town, after a private meeting with President Amani Abeid Karume….

The Aga Khan Trust for Culture and the Zanzibar Ports Corporation have also entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to jointly design a development plan for a section of the old port area. Redevelopment of this historic gateway to the Stone Town is expected to protect and preserve the urban fabric as it enhances the area’s value as a vibrant public space.

Collaboration with governmental and other partners can help create considerable economic opportunity, as well as social and environmental benefits, as we continue to preserve and make productive valuable cultural assets, (the Aga Khan said).
