The aim of The State of African Cities 2018: The geography of African investment report is to contribute to development policies that can turn African cities into more attractive, competitive and resilient foreign direct investment (FDI) destinations. Attracting global FDI is highly competitive and crosses various geographic scales, therefore regional cooperation by cities and nations is critical. But FDI is not a panacea since it has both positive and negative effects and careful choices need to be made by cities in their pursuit of FDI, if it is to lead to inclusive economic growth.

The position for women in Ugandan society could be considered one of power - lessness: influenced by a range of factors including social norms and practices that prevent their full participation in the world of work (WoW), inequitable gender paygaps, and a variety of barriers in women’s professional and personal lives.

This joint publication by CYFI and UN-Habitat examines youth economic citizenship in Sub-Saharan Africa.

The ICT, Urban Governance and Youth report is the fourth report in the Global Youth-Led Development series. The report provides a conceptual framework which reflects the rapidly changing dynamics in three areas of urban development: the demographics of the fastest growing segment of urban populations, youth (ages 15 to 24); information and communications technology (ICT) and particularly mobile phones; and governance, particularly local governance in the developing world. This report takes into account the special characteristics of young, technologically savvy citizens.
This report represents the findings of two parallel surveys: a survey on Youth and Harmonious Urbanization and one on Youth-Led Development.
This report contains the results of an inventory, or mapping, of youth-led initiatives undertaken during the inception phase of the Opportunities Fund.
The inventory was conducted to identify and assess existing organisations and initiatives that would enhance the effectiveness of the fund.
Planning is half the job. Starting a centre is a huge task. Here is some practical advice and important things to remember in the process
This manual exists as one of a growing library of materials produced by UN-HABITAT for use by and in Urban Youth Centres, both One Stop and We Are the Future models.
This manual is about the core principles and procedures for the starting up of, delivery of, and monitoring of One Stop Youth Information Resource Services. Using the guidelines within this manual will enable service users (and potential users) to be the central focus of service delivery. The purpose of the working manual, therefore, is to act as a point of reference for good practice, providing a framework for assessing the quality of services and the means of quality assurance for young people, information service managers and funding bodies.
The concept of One Stop Centres grew out of a collaborative process with key stakeholders including youth, municipal leaders, and UN-HABITAT.
The purpose of this Guide is to provide Urban Youth Centres, and municipalities in the process of setting up such Centres, with the following:
