The date of the 7th edition of Africities Summit, taking place in Johannesburg, South Africa was modified. In fact, the Executive Committee of Africities has decided to hold the Summit two days in advance of the initial date.
Hence, Africities will take place from 29 November to 3 December 2015, in order to accommodate the participation of Africa’s Local Governments to the different summits taking place on the same period.
This decision was made to avoid that two other major events fall on the same period as Africities for UCLG Africa, its members as well as its partners. The other major events are the UN Climate Change Conference (COP21) in Paris (from 30 November to 11 December) which, will open on a cities meeting on climate organized by UCLG, C40 and ICLEI and UCLG World Council in Paris taking place on 5 and 6 December 2015.
