Let's check on megacities of the future and do not be suprised where you find them!

This graphic from visualcapitalist.com server introduces 20 most populous megacities at the end of 21st century.  Expectation is that they will not be in America or Europe, China or India, but in Africa. They should have up to 100 million of inhabitants! There will be many other cities accommodating in their boundaries around 50 millions of inhabitants in other places, mainly India and other states. This is something we really need thing through right now, no later. With all technical development those cities will not probably lead a pack of places with focus on innovative industry. This extremely high concentration of technical infrastructure will make those cities very hard to maintain it, after they stabilize their growth. Even technology will be at different level 80 years from now and people's adaptability in to technical advancement will also approve a lot, this new phenomena will change many processes in urbanized areas in extreme way and we need to react way ahead to help to make this process sustainable not only for our planet, but also for people who will live in these megacities of future.

According to predictions from the Global Cities Institute, these will be the biggest cities in the world in 2100:



Lagos is already one of the biggest metropolises in Africa, and we previously noted that it was one of the fastest growing cities in the world.


In fact, it’s growing so fast, that no one knows how big it actually is. The U.N estimated it had 11.2 million people in 2011, and the year after The New York Times said it had at least 21 million inhabitants. In any case, this Nigerian metropolis is growing like a weed, and the Global Cities Institute estimates that the city’s population will hit the 88.3 million mark by 2100 to make it the biggest city in the world.


The city is already a center of West African trade and finance – but Lagos has ambitious plans to up the ante even further. Right now, the city is building Eko Atlantic, a massive new residential and commercial development that is being pitched as the “Manhattan of Nigeria”. It’s just off of Victoria Island, and it is being built on reclaimed land with special measures in place to prevent flooding from global warming.


Kinshasa


When people think of the DRC, sprawling metropolises generally aren’t the first things that come to mind.


But Kinshasa, once the site of humble fishing villages, has already likely passed Paris as the largest French-speaking city in the world. And it’s getting bigger – by 2100, it’s projected to be the world’s second largest city overall.


How Kinshasa develops will certainly be interesting. As it stands, approximately 60% of the 17 million people living there by 2025 will be younger than 18 years old. How the city deals with education will be paramount to the city’s future progression.


Dar Es Salaam


Have you heard of Dar Es Salaam, the Tanzanian megacity that will hold 73.7 million inhabitants in 2100?


It’s not on a lot of people’s radars, but its population will explode 1,588% to become the third largest city in Africa, and in the world.


Interestingly, East Africa will be home to many of the world’s biggest cities in the future – and many will be seemingly popping up out of nowhere. Consider Blantyre City, Lilongwe, and Lusaka, for example. Most Westerners will not likely have heard of these places, but these centers in Malawi and Zambia will each hold over 35 million people.


Mumbai


Finally, the last city to round out the top four is Mumbai, which is already one of the world’s biggest megacities with over 20 million people.


As the entertainment capital of India, it will be interesting to see how Mumbai evolves – and how it ends up comparing to other Indian megacities like Delhi and Kolkata, which each will hold over 50 million residents themselves.
