    With rapidly increasing urban populations, cities in Africa are faced with enormous challenges and will have to find ways to facilitate by 2015 urban services, livelihoods and housing for more than twice as many urban dwellers than it has today.

    A worrying trend with the African urbanization process is that it is a process rooted in poverty rather than an industrialization-induced socio-economic transition as in other major world urban regions. Africa’s escalating urban problems have received less attention than warranted and now, at the dawn of Africa’s urban age, these need to be addressed.

    An excellent publication. Pity about mentioning Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Twon in the same breath as Lagos where 16 million people live! Ade Aderogba MBE
    excellent GETNET GUADIE
    excellent idriss konate
    It is a must read for African city researcher Aliyu Salisu Barau
    Very good Maria Júlia Ferreira
    I appreciate this work.The content of this book needs to be read and transmitted to all who care about the growth and development of africa, edah alexander
    I agree with Aliyu, yes researchers its an important handbook also our policy makers and implementers need to subscribe and offer commentary of issues of policy and relevance etc... angelita
    It should be an excellent read but researchers like us should be allowed to read the report free. Olufemi Oyedele

    Please send me information on the progress of the intercity of Africa. Thank you. frank Johnson
    This treatise and indeed mini encyclopeadia of African cities is not only informative, educative and communicative, but also it is highly inspiring to me in my daily search for a recipe to the emerging threats, which are acruing from rapid urbanisation in Africa and around the world. It is of course, a master piece in my life course, hence I usually fold back to it on a daily basis. Yet, I look forward to reading its revised version as more years roll out and more African cities embrace new shapes. Thank you for providing me with my daily companion. Abdulazeez Yusuf
