African Cities Symposium on Climate Change

August 09, 2006

On Wednesday, September 20, 2006, ICLEI will host a one-day symposium on climate change as part of the Africities 4 Summit in Nairobi, Kenya. Africities, held every three years, takes place from 18 to 24 September, and is expected to attract 10,000 participants. Africities is significant in that it is the only gathering of African local governments.


African local government leaders are being invited to:

  • be briefed on climate change projections for Africa and on the international climate change negotiations;
  • learn how to keep African communities safe from the impacts of climate change; and
  • explore solutions that build sustainable communities and protect the climate.
