Follow the progress of the ABC21 project, of which the GlobalABC is allied!

The "Africa-Europe bioclimatic collaboration for the 21st century" (ABC21) project, coordinated by Politecnico di Milano and funded by the EU's Horizon 2020 programme, aims to identify and document African and European bioclimatic designs and the use of local materials as methods to develop and promote sustainable and energy-efficient buildings.

Led by an international consortium, the ABC21 project intends to promote adequate, locally adapted bioclimatic approaches by providing updated state-of-the-art information on the best technologies and techniques available. Publications, webinar recordings, training materials and weather files for futur climate will be published in the knowledge centre of the ABC21's website following the project timeline.

This two-year project, launched in September 2020, already has 9 partners and 15 allies in Europe and Africa, including the GlobalABC and some of its members: ADEME, Construction21, French Ministry of Ecological Transition, AFD, ECREEE, ECOWAS and BPIE.

Do not miss the first project related materials that will be published later this month on ABC21's website!
