Preparing the next generation of engineering leaders to grow Africa’s megacities sustainably

Today, seven of the world’s 100 largest cities are in Africa. But by 2050, population models predict that this will rise to 21, and eventually reach 40 by the end of the century. By then, Africa will be home to five of the world’s ten largest cities, each with more than 50 million residents. Members from U of T Engineering, including Professor Greg Evans, aim to prepare the engineering leaders who will lead African cities through the coming transformation. Read full story.
