The Governor of Abidjan since 2011, Robert Beugré Mambé has served as Director of ministerial cabinets and was assigned to a series of community projects by the World Bank. He was President of the Independent Electoral Commission of the Republic of Ivory Coast before being appointed Governor, taking the lead on bringing social cohesion and rebuilding greater Abidjan.
Placing urban development as a service of humanity, Governor Mambé fights poverty through social and economic projects in urban agriculture and the agro-industry. He revived the financial capital of Abidjan around the emergence project of the President of the Republic, Mr Alassane Ouattara, launching works on roads, electrification, water supply and education in 2011.
Governor Mambé is Vice President of the International Association of Francophone Mayors; Vice President of Metropolis for Africa; Vice President of the International Association of Peace Messenger Cities for Africa, which includes the cities of the world recognised by the UN as Peace Messenger Cities; and Vice President of the International Association of Francophone Regions. In 2015, Governor Mambé was included in Young Intelligent Africa’s list of “the 50 personalities that built the Ivory Coast.”
