This report presents the problem,
describes the analytical framework, the African and World
context and the characteristics that need to be present for
a responsible and effective urbanization. Chapter one
discusses the issues involved in measuring urban growth and
density and the problem of under-measuring density. Chapter
two introduces key aspects of the recent urbanization in
Tanzania, including migration, structure of economy and
employment and the estimation of the urban contribution to
Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Chapter three discussed the
backbone of any urbanization policy, land management and
land markets, and how the government is in a position to
drastically improve the main constraint of a healthy
urbanization process by unleashing urban land supply and
providing the urban actors with the most needed factor:
serviced urban land. Chapter four discusses the universal
provision of basic services and the general picture for
rural and urban Tanzania at present. Chapter five discusses
the need for substantial infrastructure to improve mobility
and connectivity and the funding potential of the different
players in the urbanization process, including central and
regional authorities. Finally, chapter six closes the report
with conclusions and recommendations.
