Opening Doors to The World And The World to Africa. Africa is the world’s second-largest and second most-populous continent. At about 30.3 million km² including adjacent islands, it covers 6% of Earth’s total surface area and 20.4% of its total land area. By 2020, Africa is likely to be the fastest urbanizing continent in the world. It is currently the most rural — only 40% of sub-Saharan Africa’s population lives in cities. We believe that for Africa to stimulate economic growth and become a global destination for individuals, businesses, and tourists, the rural towns have to start competing among one another starting within the country and later with other African countries and then with global similar towns. The cities will have to do the same and this will result in improved infrastructure and investment climate to enable them to develop along with their growing populations.
Our programs are offered on the subscription payment model. We offer three Programs. The difference being the level of city’s maturity to becoming a smart city. Cities joining any program may wish to participate in another program without any additional subscription.
By joining the Program, the city will be put in the global map to be measured and benchmarked year on year basis. The data is useful in recognizing the city as this will attract foreign direct investments.
