Abstract [en]

Impressive urbanisation and the growth of cities – and migration and mobility related to this trend – are important concerns today. While major cities increasingly concentrate economic growth, global networks and relations, they also capture and absorb significantly the efforts for urban management and governance. Evidence of this fact can be seen in the recently issued Sustainable Development Goals or Habitat III's New Urban Agenda. At the same time though, emergent towns and cities – which attract urban and rural populations to new opportunities – are potentially transforming themselves into new forms of urbanism that are not always clearly addressed by standard urban management and policy. This chapter contributes to identifying and discussing the features of these trends in African contexts, particularly in settings affected by rapid transformations, such as those of Angola and Mozambique. More specifically, it discusses the importance of emergent towns for urban policy and management, describing some types of new towns that are increasingly prevalent. Based on field research, the chapter highlights the main features of the urban transformation in such towns, referring to important dimensions to better understand these realities: state and urban dwellers' investments and the consolidation of urban type of living.
