Rapid urbanisation and population growth are forecasted across many cities in developing countries. This is likely to result in more waste generation and energy demand.

Similarly, cities are transitioning away from landfilling – exploring various climate change and sustainability strategies. Local municipalities and related organisations play a very important role in managing this. 

Several industry reports have found that cities can induce sustainability by implementing various climate change and renewable energy strategies. Among the reports are Renewables in Cities Global Status Report (2021), The Future of Sustainable Cities: Urban energy transition to 2030, and Energy and Resilient Cities.

With specific reference to waste management, local municipalities are in an opportune space to explore technologies such as anaerobic digestion as a sustainable approach to waste management and energy generation.

Enlit Africa is the new unifying brand for African Utility Week and POWERGEN Africa.
