The world’s first three-day event of this kind

The 28th edition of the Summit will bring together 54 African heads of state and a variety of stakeholders from Africa and France offering projects and solutions. Their ideas will help us build sustainable cities and regions and rise to the challenges of the massive urbanisation expected to take place in Africa over the next few decades.


The Summit

The French President, Emmanuel Macron, has organised this major political event which, for the first time, will gather political and economic stakeholders from Africa and France. Together, they will take action and work towards developing the sustainable city of the future.
