SHAPING THE FUTURE
IN SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA
UN-Habitat and Vinnova, Sweden’s Innovation Agency, have announced the innovative companies that will demonstrate cleantech solutions in four world cities.
A total of 45 finalists were selected from nearly 200 proposals that were reviewed by an expert advisory panel, the cities and the Climate Smart Cities Challenge partners.
Applications were evaluated based on three criteria: whether they were ready to be demonstrated in a real-world environment, well-suited to join a team and have great potential to achieve impact.
“This is an exciting opportunity to develop carbon neutral smart homes with a team of experts and IBS Foundation is looking forward to being part of the kick-off workshop in February 2022” says Eckardt Dauck, Chairman of IBS Foundation.

IBS Foundation and Makerere University have initiated a Centre for Sustainable Construction as part of CEDAT. The new building has been designed to suit local climate conditions and to utilise locally manufactured green building materials
Maternity Clinic, Omugo Camp, Uganda
A new maternity ward is under construction in Northern Uganda. This facility is located within a refugee settlement and will greatly improve the situation for woman giving birth. The structure is being built by young Ugandans and refugees that have been trained by IBSF during the construction of previous projects.

The Kakuma Mission Hospital currently has 62 beds and a small maternity ward. IBS Foundation has started with the construction of new building that will house the maternity ward and add 12 beds to the hospitals capacity.
