This milestone event is hosted by ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability – Africa, in partnership with the City of Dar es Salaam, and will build on the successes achieved at the inaugural LOCS event (http://locs4africa.iclei.org/ ) in Cape Town, which attracted an audience from over 25 African countries.
 
The biennial LOCS Congress series provides a unique and accessible platform for African local leaders, their associations, national governments, 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 broad context of climate change. This world-class Pan-African event serves to identify and showcase innovative solutions and opportunities to the challenges of rapid urbanization, and realistic responses to climate change at the local government level.
 
The interlinked congress themes will include a strong emphasis on local leadership, financing and accelerating integrated action at the local and subnational level, underpinned by a special focus on the water-food-energy nexus as pivotal pillars towards climate resilience in Africa.
 
The LOCS 2013 programme aims to achieve three important strategic outcomes as well as focusing on sharing of best practices, latest trends and connecting cities on the topic of food-water-energy in a changing climate:
• Connecting the global climate movement to the voice of African local governments – on the path to Paris 2015 and HABITAT III 2016 • Facilitating the development of a path towards mechanisms for access to climate financing and investment for African Local Governments • Launching of the ICLEI – Africa – Local Climate Solutions work programme for African local governments
