A Malian girl in Bamako and a Yemeni boy in Sana’a: what do they have in common?
  

They both live in two of the world’s fastest growing cities!

Sana’a, the ancient Yemeni capital, is the 3rd fastest growing city in the world with an annual growth rate of 5% and a population of 1.7 million.

Bamako (translated “village of crocodiles”) is the 6th fastest growing city in the world and the fastest growing city in Africa (Yes! It is neither Lagos nor Cairo). The Malian capital  currently has a population of 1.3 million and grows at the rate of 4.45% annually.

Now you know!
