Ce rapport continue la série des « State of African Cities » publiés par ONU Habitat en 2008, 2010 et 2014. Les rapports 2010 et 2014 sont disponibles sur ce site.
This fourth report in UN-Habitat's State of African Cities series parallels the Addis Ababa Action Plan of Financing by seeking to outline how Africa can consider financing its development strategy through foreign direct investment (FDI) in African cities. A common trait today is Africa's massive investment gap in domestic and urban economies, infrastructure and human resources. The report argues that African nations should search for the best trajectories for their own development, taking into account their country and city-specific locational advantages and disadvantages in attracting more and more equitable international investments from public and private sources. This should be done with the overarching goal of accelerating Africa's structural transformation–a large scale shift from growth dominated by the primary sector, to one led by manufacturing, service andknowledge-intensive industries.
