WorldGBC Africa Regional Network Manifesto 2021

The World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) African Regional Network represents Green Building Councils and regional partners in sub-sahara Africa.

In 2019 in Africa, buildings accounted for 57% of total final energy consumption and 32% of total process-related CO2 emissions. 

By 2050; Africa will be home to 1.3 billion more people than today, more than doubling the total floor area with more than 80% of that growth occurring in cities, especially informal settlements 

The role of a smart sustainable built environment for everyone everywhere is crucial. In fact, it would be impossible to achieve UN Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 and the AU Agenda 2063 goals unless the vast potential in the built environment sector is unlocked. 

 

AFRICA REGIONAL NETWORK ADVOCACY MANIFESTO

The Africa We Want is a resilient, socially inclusive, equitable, environmentally sustainable and culturally vibrant built environment for everyone everywhere

We intend to achieve this by transforming the building and construction sector and entire value chain across three strategic areas -climate action, health & wellbeing, and resources and circularity.

We commit to work with businesses, organisations and governments to drive the ambitions of the Paris Agreement and UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development. Through a systems change approach, our global and regional network is leading the industry towards a net zero carbon, healthy, equitable and resilient built environment.
