Africa’s New Cities Summit

Africa’s New Cities Summit, hosted by the Charter Cities Institute in association with the Rwanda Development Board (RDB) and the Africa Infrastructure Development Association (AfIDA), brings together all facets of the international development community – developers, builders, governments, academics, and more – to address the pressing issue of rapid urbanization in Africa. The summit serves as a platform for discussing challenges, finding solutions, and optimizing opportunities related to urbanization.

The desired outcomes of Africa’s New Cities Summit are as follows:

  • Showcasing and drawing lessons from charter cities and similar projects that can be applied in other contexts
  • Establishing a coalition to accelerate economic growth in emerging markets
  • Facilitating relationships and partnerships to advance the building of new, thriving cities

The Summit will bring together leading global experts in designing, financing, constructing, governing, and operating new city developments throughout the continent and around the world. A key aspect of the event will be the exchange of best practices, challenges, and lessons learned among those actively involved in building new cities.
