Knowledge Note

Ghana’s urban transformation has been momentous, but it is not unique; a similar process has characterized other countries at similar levels of development.

Many rising problems are related to efficiency and inclusion. These include slums, lack of basic services, underdeveloped manufacturing, and insufficient transport infrastructure.
