The SACCJ is pleased to share an initiative presented by JICA and UNDP, AFRI CONVERSE 2021#3 Sustainable and Smart Cities in Africa.
UNDPでは2019年8 月に開催されたTICAD 7に向けて日本国内で関係者及び関心のある団体・個人様の間でのネットワーキングと意見交換を支援させて頂くべく、2018年6月より月例の対話イベント“AFRI CONVERSE”を展開してまいりました。2022年開催予定のTICAD 8に向けて本イベントを再開し、JICAと隔月共催いたします。
In a lead up to TICAD 7 held in Yokohama in August 2019, UNDP had started to convene a monthly gathering, “AFRI CONVERSE”, to galvanize discussion on African development and TICAD as well as to promote networking among stakeholders. UNDP have started a new series with JICA to review TICAD 7 in 2019 and prepare for TICAD 8 in 2022.
With Africa’s urban population tripled to over 1.3 billion people by 2050, the agenda of inclusive, sustainable, and smart cities is a common priority. The session will discuss the impact of COVID-19 on urban cities and explore policy and programme interventions as well as business models towards building forward better, drawing from the experience in Asia and beyond.
