Much of the African population suffers from hunger, misery,
wars, unemployment, among many other decadent situations. Africa
is undoubtedly the continent with the worst social indicators in
the world. The African continent is currently home to about 930
million inhabitants. Of this total, a large part is concentrated
in Nigeria, Egypt, Ethiopia, Democratic Republic of Congo and
South Africa, which are the most populous countries.
regions with the highest demographic densities are those with
fertile soils, such as the river valley and the Nile and Niger
Delta, in addition to the coastal coast, a place with good

comprise desert areas, such as the Sahara desert (Islamic
Africa), the Namibian and Calaari desert and the forests of
Congo (Sub-Saharan Africa).
Currently, the continent has undergone an intense process of
urbanization, even so, large urban centers are restricted: the
largest cities are Cairo (Egypt), with about 7 million

(Nigeria), with 7 million; Casablanca (Morocco), with 3.7
million; Kinshasa (Democratic Republic of Congo), with 9
million; Algiers (Algeria), with 2.5 million; and Cape Town

African countries have the worst mortality rates (13.5%), in
addition to having a high birth rate (35.2%) and the highest

of life of population is decadent. Hunger and AIDS are problems
that affect Africa almost entirely. According to data from the
United Nations, about 150 million Africans do not eat the
minimum amount of calories daily, and another 23 million are at
risk of starvation.
All the social problems identified in Africa (poverty, hunger,
unemployment, wars, etc) can be aggravated, considering that if
vegetative growth continues at the same pace (around 1.9% per
year), in 2015 the African population will be 1 billion, a fact
that will trigger an increase in the demand for food, increasing
