LAGOS, (CAJ News) – LAGOS is rated highly among African cities taking the lead in investing in and implementing interventions aimed at conserving natural resources and energy for future generations.

According to organisers of the upcoming seventh Africities Summit, the country’s commercial capital city was implementing several sustainability focused projects and on the lead to promote efficient community-based waste management.

The city’s rapid urbanisation and population growth has put a lot of pressure on its water, waste management and sanitation infrastructure.

These have seen the birth of the Lagos State Water Supply Master Plan 2010 – 2020, which promotes, among others, access to potable water, reduction of waste and unaccounted water.

The plan is also designed to increase the amount of billed water, revenue collection efficiency and enhance reinvestment.

Lagos’ Sustainable Sewage and Sanitation Strategy furthermore includes the development of ten new waste water treatment plants.

This is also as the city has a landfill gas project underway, which comprises a municipal solid waste composting facility earmarked to lead to a significant reduction of emissions.

Lagos was reported in 2014 to have a metropolitan population of 21 million, making it the largest metropolitan area in Africa and the seventh most populous in the world.

It was mentioned alongside Johannesburg (South Africa) and Accra (Ghana) as the cities that have begun taking the lead with the investment and implementation of interventions designed to conserve natural resources and energy.

The ratings came ahead of Africities Summit, which is organised by the United Cities and Local Governments of Africa.

Expected to touch on efficient resource management and renewable energy initiatives across the continent, it will be held in Johannesburg from November 29 to December 3.
