Land for housing in African cities: are informal delivery systems institutionally robust and pro-poor?

Abstract

This paper reports on some of the findings from a research project that examined contemporary informal land delivery systems in six medium-sized cities in Anglophone Africa: Eldoret in Kenya, Kampala in Uganda, Lusaka in Zambia, Maseru in Lesotho, Gaborone in Botswana, and Enugu in Nigeria. The aim of the project was to improve understanding of informal urban land development processes. It analysed the characteristics of contemporary informal land markets and delivery systems.
