One of the objectives of Sustainable Development Goals is to have sustainable cities that provide opportunities for all, including access to basic services, energy, housing, and transport. In this special coverage, we look at some African cities like Lagos and Kigali that are on the move and others such as Abidjan and Mogadishu that are recovering.
