SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IN AFRICA
Dunstan L. Macauley, P.E. HBDP, LEED AP
Technical Session Topic:
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT IN AFRICA
Countries on the continent of Africa have great natural resources in terms of minerals, energy, and good climate. However these resources need to be developed for the benefit of its peoples. It has a large (around 1 billion) population which is spread across the continent in numerous population centres which generally lack the amenities and services that most developed countries take for granted. It would be easy to assume that sustainable development should follow 'western' examples with migration from countryside to modern cities but the opposite is more likely to happen and more sustainable given the wide distribution of natural resource, renewable energy and peoples. This seminar identifies key issues and how developed countries can be pro-active in guiding Africa toward sustainable development.
