Did you know that globally, only 2% of our planets’ water is freshwater, which is fundamental to both human and urban development?
Water is THE critical challenge for many of our local governments. African cities, as diverse as large metro’s to small towns, are constantly experiencing challenges of water security, drought and flooding.
As such, there has never been a more relevant time for a pan-African congress to move “from dialogue to action” providing on the ground solutions, unpacking emerging trends and unlocking financial mechanisms.
Connecting business and industry, investors, scientists, technical experts, development partners, national governments and civil society with Africa’s cities and urban networks; the Local Climate Solutions for Africa (LOCS4Africa) Congress series presents an opportunity for direct engagement and strategic discussions around current local solutions and emerging trends relating to urban resilience and low-carbon development in Africa.
As Africa’s leading platform on local climate action for cities and other sub-national governments across the continent, LOCS4Africa 2017 will explore critical links between climate change and urban water and sanitation in Africa’s cities.
Date: 22 March 2017 – 24 March 2017
