SALGA in Partnership with the South African Cemeteries Association and the eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality hosts an African Cemeteries and Crematoria Conference in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal.

Posted: 28 August 2017


The three-day Pan African Cemeteries and Crematoria Conference will be held at the Durban International Convention Centre (ICC) from 28-30 August 2017.

The Conference has been themed “Life after Death is Africa Adapting?” the Conference brings together cemetery associations from all over the major African cities, Mayors, Councillors, Municipal Managers, Cemetery Managers, and Academics from different Tertiary Institutions. 

It also brings together Law Enforcement Agencies, the Religious Community, Funeral Undertakers and Monumentalises, Community Representatives, Professional bodies as well as Scientific and Research communities.

The conference is to focus on what is being done to mitigate challenges relating to land availability and solutions for long term sustainability. It will look at how cemetery and crematoria services relate to environmental, conservation, and recreational services in order to benchmark it with international practices. 

Delegates will also discuss how HIV/Aids and other communicable diseases contribute to the escalation of burials, which leads to the shortage of land, as well as what is the contribution of cemetery and crematoria services in the spread of the pandemic.

Lastly, the conference will look at how the demand for burial space is being incorporated into development planning in African cities.
