Urbanization and Wellbeing

Urban Health and the Physical Environment

Cities are the future of our world. Today, more than half of the world’s population lives in urban centers—and this proportion will continue to grow. By 2050, nearly seven in ten persons will be living in cities. Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), currently the least urbanized of all major regions of the world, will see the share of its urban population increasing from the current level of about 37% to more than 60%. Indeed, by 2030, 95 per cent of the world’s population growth and 97 per cent of the growth in the developing world will occur in Third-World cities.

The Urbanization and Wellbeing (UWB) research program at APHRC strives to be a pacesetter in defining research priorities on urban studies in Africa and in producing credible evidence on the causes, course and consequences of the urbanization process in the region.
