As the population around the world continues to grow, Africa is no different. With 1.1 billion today, it is estimated that by the end of the century there will be 4.2 billion people living in Africa – accounting a growth from now 15,7% of the world’s entire population to 38.5% in 2100 according to the human development index created by the United Nations. This creates a huge challenge to make sure there are services available to sustain everyone.
