5. Lome, Togo.

The city of Lome which has over 800 thousand inhabitants, has a serious problem when it comes to waste management and clean water.

In fact the a large percentage of the people that live there are living without clean water or sanitation and due to all the extensive flooding in the city, the issues have only magnified.

4. Pointe Noire, Congo.

Pointe Noire has a population of over 700 thousands and is dealing with air pollution from vehicle emissions and water contamination from huge heaping of raw sewage being dumped into the city's water supply. Most residents of the Congo either live in pointe Noire, Brazzaville or along the railroad track that connects the two.

3. Bamako, Mali.

Due to rapid population growth and urban pollution, Bamako is riddled with a mix of health and sanitation challenges. In fact, due to all the droughts that the city suffers with, a lot of people living in rural area have moved to the urban areas of the City, causing more even water and waste management issues.

2. Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.

Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso has over two millions people living in it, most who suffer from cancer and respiratory diseases due to their air pollution that has infected the city. The World Health Organization has stated that the benzene levels in the air have tripled in the last two decades due to motorbike petrol and dust particles.

1. Moscow, Russia.

In Moscow the average cost for an apartment is $3000, and most of them don't even have clean running water.

Add that to the dangerous high levels of air pollution that put a daily strain on lung health, and it's surprising that anyone would want to live there.
