The East Africa Chamber of Commerce invited ESI Board Member Ralph Jarvis to speak on current and future sustainability trends in Africa.
Here are some of the topics that were discussed: • Water Stress • Water Scarcity • Rising Pollution & Emissions • Forecasted Population Growth • Deforestation
The theme was designed to provide a call to action for East African nations and the businesses operating there.
Ralph also discussed where potential business and community collaboratio nopportunities could exist.
Although not discussed, the reality is that a legal backdrop is essential to root out corruption and facilitate adoption of sustainability policies and practices.
The conference was attended by people interested in sustainability, including business executives, entrepreneurs and government officials. Mr. Jarvis is an author in sustainability, business consultant, speaker and a board member of the Econautics Sustainability Institute.
