Building ‘Economically Productive, Socially Inclusive, Environmentally Sustainable & Well Governed’ Cities
Ethiopia remains one of the least urbanized countries in Africa and almost 80 percent of the population resides in rural areas where they eke out a living from subsistence agriculture. However, rapid population growth, a sluggish agricultural performance and increased rural-urban migration have been countering this. The pace of urban growth is expected to accelerate in the coming decades and this will largely be in small- and medium-size cities with low resilience to climate change shocks.
