Acknowledgements

In an effort to review in detail the conditions, trends and effects of foreign direct investment on urban development across the African continent, The State of African Cities 2018 report involved a large number of international organizations, academic institutions and individual experts.

The report was conceived and produced through a cooperation between the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS) at the Erasmus University Rotterdam (responsible as lead institution for the research) and UN-Habitat (responsible for overall coordination).

At UN-Habitat, the publication was coordinated by Joseph Maseland, Mathias Spaliviero, Katharina Rochell and Paula Pennanen-Rebeiro- Hargrave, who were assisted by Monica Gakindi and Jessica Mundia.

About Cities Today

The State of African Cities 2018 is published by IHS-Erasmus University Rotterdam and UN-Habitat in partnership with the African Development Bank. The aim of the 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. This report aims to provide guidance on these choices and to facilitate understanding of the complexity of global investment in Africa.
