Urban and Rural Development


Africa has undergone extremely rapid urbanisation over the last 50 years – faster than any other continent in the world. Today, approximately 20% of the world’s 100 fastest growing cities are in Africa. This high urban growth is accompanied by major urban challenges to address on our way to sustainable urban development combining economic growth and social equity, through considerations of traffic and transport, storm water and waste management.

Earth Systems has experience in developing and implementing environmental management programs in urban environments. With the ability to provide services from the initial feasibility stage through to construction, operations and completion, we offer a full range of services to meet the needs of sustainable urban development projects through its lifetime. We provide advice on a range of urban development issues such as sustainable urban transport, waste management, water management and treatment and stormwater management. We also have experience in providing climate change risk and vulnerability assessments for urban areas.
