The United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) is holding the 8th edition of the Africities summit in Marrakesh, from 20 to 24 November 2018.
The Africities summit is a pan-African event that is held every three years in one of the five regions of Africa, for communities and local authorities of African countries as well as financial institutions, civil society groups and development partners at continental and international level. Its aim is to define appropriate shared strategies in order to improve the living conditions of people at the local level and to contribute to the integration, peace and unity of Africa starting from the grassroots.
The stakeholders of African local life will discuss the future of Africa on three main segments : open sessions, thematic sessions and political sessions. The topics addressed will be numerous, from culture and heritage to climate change. The thematic sessions will be divided in 4 parts: transition, local strategies, innovative local practices and mobilizing local stakeholders.
The Africities 8 Exhibition will host between 400 – 500 exhibitors.
If you register before the 31st July, you can have the Early bird fee.
