Africa Is Undoubtedly A Fast Growing Continent, Yet Full Of Unlivable Cities- See Why, Global Livability Index

The most recent Global Livability Index 2017 demonstrates that African urban communities enrolled a huge change in the overview, however just two of them, Johannesburg and Pretoria, made the main 100 on the rundown.

The examination overviewed 140 urban communities, in view of five classes: human services, learning and education, security, culture and tourism.

Nine of the 15 African urban areas incorporated into the study were positioned among the last 20 entertainers, with normal scores of underneath 60 for every penny.

Nairobi, the main East African city in the overview, was among the most enhanced, climbing five positions to 120, up from 125 a year ago, supported by a noteworthy change in its security score.

Nairobi’s general social insurance was appraised ‘horrendous’, while government funded training, transport, street system and water supply, are altogether measured as “undesirable.”


Nairobi, however, scores highly in the culture and environment category for having a good climate, albeit with an undesirable culture of corruption.

Most improved

Lagos, Africa’s largest city according to the World Atlas, was among the worst performers, dropping to position 139, from 137 last year, saddled with the continued threat from terror groups such as Boko Haram.

For the seventh consecutive year, Australia’s Melbourne is the most livable urban centre, closely followed by the Austrian capital, Vienna.

Tehran, Dubai, Abidjan, Harare and Colombo are the five most improved cities over the past five years, although they still remain in the lower half of the rankings.

Conflict and political instability were responsible for the lowest scores, with nearly all the bottom ten cities in countries embroiled in or recovering from civil conflicts.
