Senegal will host the African Chemical Societies for the General Assembly of the Federation of African Societies of Chemistry (FASC), It will be held in conjunction with the Annual Days of Chemistry of Senegal (Journées Annuelles de Chimie du Sénégal - JACS), the major event of the Senegalese Committee for Chemistry (CSC), from 19 to 21 November 2024 at Radisson Blu Hotel, Dakar Sea Plaza, Corniche Ouest, Dakar, Senegal. The conference is themed "Chemistry, a lever for sustainable development of African countries". FASC|JACS 2024 will be jointly organized by CSC and FASC along with their partners among which are RSC, ACS, IUPAC, OPCW and West African Society of Chemistry (SOACHIM/Senegal) and in collaboration with Senegalese universities. The aim of this conference is not only to bring together Africa's scientific, technological and industrial communities, but also to rethink together a structurally sustainable development centered on mankind and its priority investments. Chemistry is heavily involved in solving problems of African societies linked to health, energy, environment, water supply and nutrition, and therefore plays a key role in the sustainable development of African countries. The Covid 19 crisis revealed the fragility of African economies and the need for genuine policies of sovereignty
in the fields of pharmaceuticals, health, food, energy and more. Africa has a very low profile at IUPAC. Senegal is one of the little number of African countries and the only
French-speaking member of IUPAC, with CSC as its National Adhering Organization. This conference is an opportunity for FASC and IUPAC to recruit new members.
