Download the new UN-Habitat report: 'Sustainable urban development in Africa'

UN-Habitat has released a new report entitled 'Sustainable urban development in Africa' as part of its Africa Urban Agenda Programme.

Africa is looking forward to the attainment of Agenda 2063, a long-term regional agenda to achieve development in five decades. This process will be supported by Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the outcome of Habitat III, which will define the New Urban Agenda for the next 20 years. In this context sustainable urbanization and human settlement development must unlock the benefits of economic agglomerations, realize the force of economic clusters for competitiveness and enhanced productivity by putting the levers of sustainable urbanization in place. This report provides information and suggestions on how sustainable urban development in Africa can serve as an enabler in attaining the desired structural transformation, increased prosperity and peaceful co-existence within the framework of Agenda 2063.
