By 2050, the urban population in Africa is expected to grow from 400 million to 1.26 billion people. African cities need to respond to these challenges in order to provide a sustainable future for their citizens and keep greenhouse gas emissions low. Therefore, ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy and adapting to the effects of climate change are among the most pressing issues for the African population.

In this context, the European Commission launched the “Covenant of Mayors in Sub-Saharan Africa” (CoM SSA) to support African cities with these challenges, by increasing their planning capacities and providing them with a platform to share knowledge and best practices. The CoM SSA is inspired by the success of the “Covenant of Mayors Europe” (CoM Europe) that united 6700 municipalities in their fight against climate change.
