This report is delivered at a critical time the country has recently embarked on reforms in decentralization, urban management, and land planning, and is preparing its National Development Plan for 2017–21. It is hoped that the Urbanization Review will serve as an advocacy piece to place the urban agenda more squarely on the political agenda. The ongoing reform process provides momentum and an opportunity to further reflect on the urbanization challenges Congolese cities are facing and what the country can do to harness the gains of urbanization economic growth, job creation, and poverty reduction in this process.
