8 Africa Engineering Week Concept Notes
This year's Africa Engineering Week and Conference will be hosted by the Ethiopian Association of Civil Engineers and will hold from November 7 to 11, 2022 in Addis Ababa the capital city of Ethiopia, under the theme: Accelerating Sustainable Infrastructure Development in Africa Together. Infrastructure is crucial for facilitating economic development and a better quality of life. This has been well recognised in both the AU's Agenda 2063 Goals and the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's). Whilst Goal 10 of the AU Agenda 2063 states "World class infrastructure criss-crosses Africa", SDG Goal 9 is "Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation."
Practically every single one of the goals listed the two aspirational sets of goals can be facilitated by appropriate infrastructure and this lies within the purview of engineers. The purpose of this conference is to examine how the development of such infrastructure can be undertaken in a sustainable manner to help raise living standards, assist in the exploitation of our natural resources, improve health, industrialize.
This will be examined under the sub-themes of:
- Information and Communication Technology
- Water and Sanitation
- Partnerships and Financing
