Urban population in Africa was reported to be the fastest growing globally and by 2030 Africa will host 6 of the world’s 41 megacities. Africa’s remarkable urban growth creates major challenges around city infrastructure and service delivery but at the same time provides an abundance of opportunities for both public and private sector players to explore and reinvent urban living in the smartest ways possible.
