Improving the effectiveness of formal housing delivery in Tanzania
Promoting evidence-based practices to enable solutions scaling by business
The rapid growth of cities in sub-Saharan Africa represents opportunities for hundreds of millions of citizens; hence understanding which policies promote efficient property development by business is key to ensuring that these cities reach their full potential. This research studies whether urban planning regulation can worsen housing outcomes, reduce social inclusivity and increase inequality in Tanzanian cities. The aim is to promote evidence-based practices to inform effective business solutions and enable the scaling of solutions by the private sector to generate large-scale and enduring change.
