  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Urbanization; Sub-Saharan Africa; Green Urban Development Policies.

The rapid urbanization in Sub-Saharan Africa is fast eroding the natural capital of the region's cities. Particularly, this trend is being driven by lower per capita incomes, high reliance on biomass fuels, extensive informal settlement with poor service levels, and the exposure of cities to environmental disasters. This is however an opportunity for the continent to gravitate towards achieving a harmonious relationship between nature and the built environment through green urban development policies.
