20-23 March 2017, South Africa

The Local Climate Solutions for Africa (LOCS4Africa) Congress series is Africa’s leading platform on local climate action for cities and other sub-national governments across the Continent.

It connects business and industry, investors, scientists, technical experts, development partners, national governments and civil society with Africa’s cities and urban networks. LOCS4Africa offers opportunity for direct engagement and strategic discussions around current local solutions and emerging trends relating to urban resilience and low-carbon development in Africa.

It is a well-established pan-African bi-annual congress, each with a strategic theme critical to urban sustainable development, in line with emerging global trends. The congress places strong emphasis on local leadership and innovative approaches to sustainable development in Africa’s urban context.

SAVE THE DATE - AfriAlliance Inaugural Conference


LOCS4Africa 2017 : Water & Climate Congress is pleased to announce that it will serve as the host platform for the Inaugural Launch Conference of AfriAlliance : ‘Africa-EU Innovation Alliance for Water and Climate’ project. AfriAlliance is an ambitious 5-year project, funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme, to get Africa better prepared to meet climate change challenges. The project will facilitate the collaboration of African and European stakeholders in the areas of water and climate innovation, research, policy, and capacity development. Rather than creating new networks, the AfriAlliance partners will consolidate existing ones, consisting of scientists, decision makers, practitioners, citizens and other key stakeholders, to stimulate the sharing of knowledge to address water related challenges.

The AfriAlliance launch is a one and a half day conference taking place during the LOCS4Africa Congress that will serve as the inaugural meeting of the AfriAlliance Innovation Alliance on the African Continent. It will present the AfriAlliance Action Groups and their areas of focus ; showcase African research, innovation, policy and capacity development initiatives that are looking for European partners and vice versa ; and provide the opportunity to obtain inputs and suggestions for further shaping AfriAlliance’s activities.
