The State of African Cities

Following the resolution of the UN-Habitat Governing Council in 2007, UN-Habitat has published the regional State of the Cities report series. The reports analyse urban specific development directions as well as the sustainability prospects of cities from a regional perspective with regional partners. This is with a view to promote sustainable urbanisation and human settlements development worldwide. The regional report series started with a pilot publication in 2008. Since then, mostly upon requests from the regions, the report series expanded rapidly. It now forms a part of the support to the UN Member States’ efforts towards the achievement of and reporting on the urban-related Sustainable Developnet Goals 2030 and the New Urban Agenda 2036.
