PRESENTATION OF THE SESSION

Starting from the observation that there are common problems in African cities, including the recurrent floods of recent decades, the growth of slums, spontaneous and uncontrolled development following a strong growth in the urban population, the deterioration of the standard of living and living environment of populations, the difficulties of access to basic social services (water, electricity, public space, etc.) to name but a few, it is clear that measures must be implemented to remedy them in a sustainable way. Faced with these concerns, local authorities, which are weakened on the technical and/or financial levels for the most part, are struggling to take concrete actions to overcome the problems they face.
