African urban futures

Africa’s future is urban, as cities and towns will increasingly shape how people live on the continent. By 2030 Africa will host six of the world’s 41 megacities. the urban transition has the potential to accelerate economic and social development, but the structural hurdles are huge. Africa’s urban population boom is happening in a context of slow structural transformation, poverty, inequality and urban violence. for Africa to seize the opportunity to build sustainable urban futures for its population, urban governance needs to improve. Megacities are central to national economic performance and should be at the forefront of any governance agenda.
