ACRIS II Testimonials
"Excellent organisation, the event was rich in information and insights about current and future infrastructure developments in Africa and on ways to mitigate the risks and challenges posed by climate change. It is an excellent platform to network with infrastructure professionals, Governments, international financiers or service providers."

"This meeting was an opportunity to learn the importance of taking account of climate resilience in infrastructure planning."

"This Summit is very instrumental for Africa with regard to future infrastructure and climate change. More particularly for Uganda it highlights the need for integrated and coordinated infrastructure planning for water, energy and roads that is climate resilient."
Hon. Flavia Nabugere Munaaba - Ministry of Water & Environment; Uganda
"I have learned more things and developed my concepts of climate change. Generally the time was very good and satisfactory, lets go influence and do more."
Elias Ashenafi - CCSA of Sendafa Town
"The Two-day Summit was wonderful and had presentations with very rich content. This is due to the efforts of the organisers to secure high-level/calibre speakers and presenters. However, there is need to consider extending the times between presentations so the participants can benefit more from presentations."
