Published on July 06, 2017

kc.JPGUrbanization and Industrialization for Africa’s Transformation is a report by the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa.

The report identifies and analyzes the drivers, enablers and policy levers for strengthening linkages between industrialization and urbanization. It shows that industrialization requires better functioning cities and systems of cities, which in turn require better performing industrialization processes.

It stresses that African countries, under the right policy frameworks anchored in national development planning, can leverage the momentum of urbanization to accelerate industrialization for a more prosperous and equitable future.
