The biennial Local Climate Solutions for Africa Congress series (LOCS) provides a platform for African local and national governments, scientists, technical experts, development partners, business, industry and civil society to engage on the complex issues and innovative solutions related to urbanisation in Africa through the context of climate change. This year’s Congress, convened by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability in partnership with the host city Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, will provide an opportunity to strengthen the sharing of global good practice and locally appropriate solutions and technologies towards accelerated climate action on the ground. Congress themes will include a strong emphasis on local leadership, financing and accelerated integrated action at the local and sub-national level, underpinned by a special focus on integrated planning towards addressing climate resilience in Africa.
