The Abidjan meetings: an opportunity to prepare for the Africa-France Summit

From 27 to 28 February 2020, Abidjan, the economic capital of Côte d’Ivoire, will host African actors of the city as part of the « Abidjan Meetings ».

These meetings are in preparation for the 28th edition of the Africa-France Summit to be held in Bordeaux in early June on the theme of the sustainable city.

These meetings aim not only to bring together ministers of urban issues and development, but also local elected officials, representatives of civil society and entrepreneurs. The aim is always to encourage exchange, the sharing of experiences and, above all, solutions for the development of sustainable and intelligent cities.

Climate Chance will be participating in the talks in Abidjan

These meetings represent the ideal opportunity for members of the African coalition working on sustainable mobility and transport issues in urban areas to present and promote their work. Indeed, the mobility coalition has recently produced a diagnosis of the mobility sector in Côte d’Ivoire as well as a detailed roadmap on the steps to follow in order to begin the transition towards sustainable cities.
