List of Top 30 Fastest Growing Cities in The World as at 2018

We all know that compiling a list of the fastest growing cities in the world as at 2018 is not an easy task considering that more people are now opting to live the urban centers as opposed to rural areas.  According to a recent research by the UN’s Department of Economic and Social Affairs, by 2050 it’s anticipated that 66 percent of the world’s population will be urban.  As horrific it may sound, this clearly serves as an indicator to expect life to get more hectic and the streets to get more crowded.

Below is a list of top 30 fastest growing cities and urban centers in the world as at 2018 as researched by the City Momentum Index (JLL’s CMI)  which looks at fast-change cities around the globe. Population, connectivity, technology, research & development, education, construction and real estate investment are the major factors taken into account. Nairobi is ranked at number ten- Africa’s highest ranking position.
