Why join ICLEI Africa?
The immense, interconnected urban sustainability challenges our world, and our continent in particular, currently face need to be tackled in an integrated, inclusive way with tenacity, boldness and proven expertise.
Our ICLEI Africa cities and regions are doing just that:
Tackling difficult, complex, interconnected sustainability issues head on and applying creative problem solving and cutting edge, innovative solutions, appropriate for our African context.
Embracing reflection and learning, and harnessing African excellence, in order to quickly adapt and evolve in response to changing circumstances and better serve their communities.
Working tirelessly with their citizens and our vast, robust network of cities and partners, to accelerate and strengthen sustainability action, and drive change.
A strength in our current reality, understanding and empowering their citizens, and sharing knowledge and best practices with each other to build resilience and create a better future for everyone.
If your city identifies with or aspires to these qualities, is serious about sustainability and wants to collaborate with leading cities across Africa and globally, join ICLEI Africa today!
At ICLEI Africa, we work across the various development agendas, aligning with African and global policies, and contextualising our work within the realities of our continent. We reach over 450 cities and regions, influencing sustainability policy and driving local action for low emission, nature-based, equitable, resilient and circular development.
