dc.description.abstract This book seeks to explore what local and national governments can do to harness the economic possibilities of Africa's expanding cities and to maximise the benefits from its abundant natural resources. It is argued that urbanisation can contribute to greater economic dynamism and sustainable reductions in poverty if it is planned and managed more effectively. This should mean that the increase in population is accompanied by stronger employment growth, enabling people to enjoy higher living standards and to lead more useful and fulfilling lives. This will require the expansion of production and not just consumption, improvements in public services, and the creation of better functioning urban environments. en
