"Informal Housing in Dar es Salaam: A Tale of Three Cities

Stephanie Burcher and Tim Wickson (Bartlett Development Planning Unit, UCL)

This seminar will discuss the everyday realities and challenges faced by residents of different types of low-income neighborhoods in Dar es Salaam, as well as the opportunities for action already being undertaken by the residents themselves. It will close with a discussion on the role of progressive urban planning in approaching some of these issues, and supporting the growth of a more equitable city.
