his groundbreaking collection, spanning energy, housing, infrastructure, safety and sustainability, offers a fresh perspective on some of the most pressing issues confronting urban Africa in the twenty-first century.Drawing on case studies from Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Niger, Nigeria, South Africa and Tanzania, it explores how the rapid growth of African cities is reconfiguring the relationship between urban social life and its built forms. How can we 'see like a city' in twenty-first-century Africa, understanding the urban present to shape its future? This is the central question posed throughout this volume, with a practical focus on how academics, local decision makers and international practitioners can work together to achieve better outcomes.
