African will have the fastest growing population growth rate the next 50 years, In addition to that Africa has the 2nd urbanization growth behind Asia.

This means Africa is going to have rapid growing cities, Currently Africa has 3 Megacities cities above 3 million Lagos, Cairo, and Kinshasa, but in decades to come. Dar es Salaam, Luanda, Nairobi, Johannesburg and a few others are projected to join. This is in addition to midsize cities that are expected to grow rapidly.

This brings a lot of challenges, With this being the city data forums as you know there's a lot of discussions over Transportation, urban development, Skylines, Architecture, Economic growth, Culture of cities. There seems to be a huge absent of discussion about urban Africa. So I wanted to make a thread for urban Africa. So post about developments, challenges, Culture and Architecture of urban Africa

Black man hugs Nazi and asks “why do you hate me?”

"Nothing but Calcutta like slums in the offing." Basically he saw Africa and completely ignore the point of the thread that he had to be negative.

If he meant there's no middle and up scale areas that's a lie............... And yes We always know there poverty and etc in Africa....... the point of this thread is post about the progression and planes to address issues in African cities.

Like Eko Atlantic... in Lagos. And Light rail in Addis Ababa etc.
