Just and People-Centered Urbanisation

According to World Bank, more than half Tanzanians will reside in the Cities by 2040. Even now over one-third of the Tanzanian population lives in urban areas. The current process of urbanization in Tanzania happens unplanned which reproduces and aggravates inequality. This is evidenced by the lack of access to affordable services, such as housing and mobility. The urban space is typically seen as largely informal, but the informal and formal are closely interconnected.

Since 2020, FES brings together a broad urban policy alliance under the umbrella of the ‘Just City Platform’ (JCP) – that comes forward with progressive proposals for a gender and socially just provision of public goods and services, for example, housing. This is done, so that urbanization, characterized by informality and low economic growth, can be shaped in a more far-sighted and inclusive direction. We believe in the importance that through participatory urban planning, where those who are directly impacted are together with academia and local government, working towards sustainable solutions for public goods and services.
