Be inspired to create change in your city
Africa is projected to have the fastest urban growth rate in the world and by 2050, Africa’s cities will be home to an additional 950 million people. With this expected population growth and rate of urbanisation, there comes a need to manage environmental, social and economic sustainability of resources.
Smart cities allow citizens and local government authorities to work together to launch initiatives and use smart technologies to manage assets and resources in the growing urban environment.
Providing African solutions for Africa’s cities, the African Smart Cities Summit will provide practical solutions to implement smart methodologies in current and future infrastructure, whilst creating new revenue streams and operational efficiencies to help save money for governments and citizens alike. Ensuring sustainability is also an important aspect that could deliver environmental and societal benefits.
