The First Africa Climate Resilient Infrastructure Summit will be held in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), from April 27 to 29, with the aim of developing a joint action in all sectors of ICT (Information and Communication Technologies), Energy, Water, Agriculture, Food Security and Transportation, to address climate change. The forum is organized by the African Union Commission (AUC).
The statement from the AU Commission ensures that the African continent will be hardest hit by climate change; hence the need for infrastructures capable of facing it.
During the First Africa Climate Resilient Infrastructure Summit (ACRIS), investment projects will be discussed, and strategies and effective practices will be explored, to accelerate the development of these plans and the adoption of efficient technologies.
Also, this forum will provide opportunities for meetings between governments and companies, and will involve Ministers from countries of the AU, multilateral development partners, subregional and regional organizations, municipal authorities, technology providers, investors, service providers and other stakeholders, both public and private.
Thus, it is expected that the summit will help expand bilateral cooperation and trade between African countries.
