Africa is characterized by strong urbanization and is accompanied by multiple challenges in terms of urban governance by different actors according to the political contexts on the continent. Thus, this article, essentially based on a theoretical study, aims to better understand the main actors and methods of urban management in Africa. This investigation shows that African cities are managed by a multitude of actors, including public actors, Technical and Financial Partners, private sector actors and populations. Moreover, these actors use governance strategies that can be summed up, among other things, by urban policies, urban planning instruments and tools. Despite the existence of these urban management methods, the study shows that they currently have limits in terms of spatial governance.
