The Charter Cities Institute is pleased to announce the inaugural Charter Cities Conference.

Despite the tremendous reduction in global poverty over the past 50 years, governments around the world still struggle to meet the challenges posed by demographic booms, poorly managed urbanization, institutional failure and ever-changing economic conditions. Migration, remittances, and aid have helped alleviate crises, but have failed as comprehensive long-term solutions.

In different corners of the world, individuals and organizations are independently discovering the potential for charter cities — new city developments granted a special jurisdiction and broad governing authority to make their economic environments more competitive — to jumpstart economic growth where previously it remained elusive.

Join the Charter Cities Institute in Johannesburg, along with charter city entrepreneurs and investors, government officials, international developments experts, and more at the inaugural Charter Cities Conference to become part of the charter cities movement and build the future of governance in emerging economies.
