This is the test editorial for the summit newsletter for 22 April.

Approximately 280 participants from ten Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) countries will converge in Johannesburg (Kopanong Hotel), South Africa from 23-25 April 2012 for the third Annual Gender Justice and Local Government Summit. South Africa Minister for Women, Children and People with Disabilities, Lulu Xingwana and the Zimbabwe Minister for Local Government, Urban and Rural Development Ignatius Chombo (MP) will open the summit.

The third summit follows Joyce Banda in Malawi taking over as the first woman president in her country and Southern Africa following the death of Binguwa Mtharika earlier this month. SADC is also supporting its daughter, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma who is vying for the Africa Union Commission chairpersonship. The summit also takes place on the back of Earth Day on 22 April and continues through Green Office Week. The summit will thus have several green themes and events.
