Structural-Transformation-of-AfricaUN-Habitat and The Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) organized a side event on The Role of Urbanization in the Structural Transformation of Africa. 

The purpose of the side event was to engage prominent African stakeholders, including representatives from member states, Regional Economic Communities (RECs), academics, civil society organizations and development partners in collective reflection, and experience sharing on issues related to urbanization and structural transformation in Africa.

The event provided an opportunity to propose measures that would harness cities and urbanization as drivers of inclusive and sustainable transformation in line with the Post 2015 Development Agenda, Africa Position on the sustainable Development Goals and the AU Agenda 2063.
