By synthesizing urbanization challenges and current trends in Africa, this dialogue piece captures the broader transformative processes taking place on the continent. We develop a vision of the African cities of the future and show the alignment of key aspects of the 'smart city' concept with the African Union’s Agenda 2063.

Strategic insights are captured in summary and conclusions
