As stated by UCLG Africa in a press release, the theme of this 9th edition of the summit remains unchanged: “The role of intermediary cities in Africa in the implementation of the UN Agenda 2030 and the African Union Agenda 2063“.

This is the first time that an intermediary city has been chosen to host the Africities Summit. The previous edition was held in Marrakech (Morocco) in November 2018 and was attended by a record 8,300 participants from 79 countries, including 52 African countries.
