We have been working hard to share the successes and challenges of the ACF program with the global community. The Annual Report for the second year of the program is now ready to share. Click on the ‘Documents’ tab above and select to download either the Executive Summary or the full report. Feedback and questions are of course strongly invited (details on the ‘Contact’ page). This report will be of interest to governments figuring out viable ways to connect all citizens to formal service providers, to practitioners wanting to understand the best ways to support the vibrant private sector to deliver these services, or anyone shocked by the statement below and wanting to learn howWSUP are addressing the challenge of an urbanising Africa.
Urban areas will account for 83.5% of Africa’s population growth between now and 2050, while rural areas will account for 16.5% of growth in the same period.*
