Climate Change & the Built Environment
The Annual Symposium is one of the key activities of Shelter Afrique’s 2020-2025 strategy. Driven by the Centre of Excellence and the need for research-based solutions, it is meant to be an avenue for collaboration and synthesizing emerging lessons, knowledge, best practices, and innovations. Ultimately the Symposium, over the years, has served to document and disseminate information to African countries, stakeholders, and key partners. Over the last two years, the COVID-19 pandemic has arrested the attention and imagination of the world. However, in the same period, the world has witnessed dramatic changes in another area that will directly impact the built environment, Climate Change. This has informed the theme for the 41st Annual General Meeting, which will be Climate Change and the Built Environment.
