Africa’s increased urban population is a powerful asset for the continent’s overall transformation. However, it can only attain its full potential when cities are properly planned and adequately serviced. A major change is needed in the course of Africa’s urban development – a shift whose main thrust can be propelled by, first, a reexamination of the planning process and the delivery of basic services.
UN-Habitat Regional Office in Africa (ROAf), located in Nairobi, Kenya, is working with African governments to take early action to position themselves for predominately urban populations. The portfolio of ongoing projects in Africa is very diverse in terms of geographic coverage and development partners.
