Cities of Africa

The African continent is currently in the midst of simultaneously unfolding and highly significant demographic, economic, technological, environmental, urban and socio-political transitions.

Africa’s economic performance is promising, with booming cities supporting growing middle classes and creating sizable consumer markets.

Africa’s urbanisation provides both a challenge and an opportunity. It is an opportunity for young people to introduce innovative ideas that will allow for diverse groups in urban centres to be able to equally access resources and infrastructure in a way that will not put pressure on the state.

However urban infrastructures, services, and land markets, as well as the urban economies, cannot absorb the newcomers to the cities

By 2030, Africa will have 760 million urban residents and that figure is expected to reach 1.2 billion by 2050 . This rapid urban growth comes with many challenges and has led to the growth of megacities in Africa

it is estimated that this continent, where approximately 40% of the population lives in cities, will be more than 60% urban by 2050.
