New Publication: Urbanization and Industrialization for Africa’s Transformation

The United Nations Economic Commission for Africa has released a new report entitled “Economic Report on Africa 2017: Urbanization and Industrialization for Africa’s Transformation.”

According to the 2017 report on Africa, half of Africa’s population will live in urban areas by 2035. The rapid urbanization presents high demands for jobs, services and infrastructure, while creating enormous opportunities for Africa’s economic growth.

About The Book
The 2017 Economic Report on Africa focuses on the linkages between industrialization and urbanization. Urbanization is one of Africa mega trends with profound implications for the social, economic, environmental dimensions of growth and transformation. Theory and experience demonstrate that industrialization and urbanization can be mutually reinforcing processes. It is therefore imperative to explore the linkages between urbanization and industrialization given the profound implications for structural transformation in Africa.
