Rwanda: Tackling the challenge of overpopulation

Issued on:

Africa's demographic growth is having a considerable impact on the continent's capital cities. Kigali, for example, is set to double its population by 2050. In one of the most densely populated areas in the world, authorities are trying to organise this growth in terms of urban planning and economics. Rwanda, which holds great ambitions on the continent, has plans to turn Kigali into Africa’s major international hub of business and finance.

But for the people who live in the city, this has meant total upheaval, and in many cases forced demolition of their homes … which they must sometimes do themselves.

A report by Simon Wohlfahrt and Bastien Renouil.
