Africapolis: Visualise urbanisation in Africa

Africa is projected to have the fastest urban growth rate in the world–by 2050, Africa’s cities will be home to an additional 950 million people. 

Cities and their inhabitants are increasingly shaping the continent's economic, social and political geography. There is a continuous need to better understand urbanisation, what it looks like today and what this means for the future. Visit the new Africapolis data portal.
