During the past three decades, there has been rapid urbanization in Africa due primarily to development strategies that emphasized urban growth at the expense of agricultural and rural development. This paper discusses and analyzes current trends in African urbanization, the factors that have contributed to urbanization and urban growth, and the resultant consequences of such rapid urbanization and urban growth in Africa.
