African cities in 2030: multidisciplinary research to meet health, demographic, economic and political challenges
This summer school is designed for graduate and doctoral students as well as professionals interested in the topic of development in Africa, and especially the unique challenges facing African cities. These include: rapid urbanization within a context of limited economic growth, threats resulting from climate change, uncontrolled road traffic and the expansion of polluting industries.
The first edition of the Africa 2030 Bordeaux Summer School took place in 2019 and addressed a broad scope of challenges and transitions for Africa at the horizon of the 2030 agenda for SDGs. The course focused on African cities as a key topic for research and intervention for African development over the next 10 years.
