Africities Summit is the appointment for Africa’s Local Authorities. Organized regularly every three years, by United Cities and Local Governments of Africa (UCLG Africa), Africities has become a distinguished opportunity for the evaluation of the implementation of decentralization policies in Africa.
The City of Johannesburg together with the United Cities and Local Governments of Africa (UCLG-A) is hosting the Africities Summit at the Sandton Convention Center, which will be taking place from 29 November to 3 December 2015.
The theme retained for the Johannesburg 7th edition of Africities Summit is “Shaping the future of Africa with the people: Africa’s Local Government contribution to the Africa Vision 2063”. The Summit seeks to mobilize African stakeholders for them to contribute to the visioning exercise championed by the African Union, and gather their commitments towards the realization of the Agenda 2063. By so doing, the Summit ensures that African People own the Agenda 2063, which is a sine qua non condition for its realization and implementation on the ground.
Therefore, the Africities Summit in Johannesburg is seen as a rallying point to celebrate a new beginning for the African continent.
