Urbanization

  The urbanization of Africa promises great economic benefits, but so far the pace of urbanization has outstripped the delivery of infrastructure services. Roads are choked, power is unreliable, and sanitation is poor. Significant investments are needed to make cities more productive and to ensure decent living conditions for growing urban populations. Poorly functioning land markets, inadequate land-use planning, and the weak financial base of most African cities are big parts of the problem.
