Description

Improving conditions for people and businesses in African cities by aggressively investing in infrastructure and reforming land markets is the key to accelerating economic growth, adding jobs, and improving competitiveness. 'Africa's Cities - Opening Doors to the World', published by the World Bank, argues that Africa’s rapidly expanding cities have a critical role to play in their countries’ economic growth, but notes that investment in African cities’ infrastructure, and their industrial and commercial structures, have not kept pace with urbanisation and population growth. To free African cities from the "low development trap", the report calls for coordinated infrastructure investment - interlinking housing, commercial and industrial development - alongside effective urban planning.
