Initiating Sustainable Urban Development through Community-driven Regularization

The Case of Makongo Juu Settlement, Dar es Salaam

by Fred Simon Lerise, Richard Mushi, Eugene Silayo

The book brings in new dimensions in planning especially in regularizing informal settlements in the global South. Apart from narrating the chronology of the processes involved in regularizing the case study settlement, it provides a novel and context-specific interpretation of unit titling in horizontally developed informal settlements. It sheds light on how complexities in regularizing informal settlements in terms of negotiations, consensus building, flexibilities in plan preparations, surveying and titling can be achieved from community-initiated regularization approaches.
