Urbanisation continues, led by rapid growth in African cities
In the next two decades, the world’s 900 major cities will experience a combined population increase of nearly 600 million people. While the largest cities will continue to be in Asia, African cities are expected to grow the fastest. In contrast, many cities in Europe and East Asia will experience population declines over this period.
