What Africa will look like in 100 years
Africa’s population is booming. By 2100, it will be home to 4.4 billion people - four times its current population. Such an increase - far larger than the global population increase of 53 per cent by 2100 - will pose significant challenges. Poverty, conflict, disease and access to education are all issues African governments will continue to face, having to build states that can support ever-increasing amounts of people.
