Exploring sanitation, land use development and inequalities in Dar es Salaam: selected studies on informal settlement

city project

Working in selected informal settlements across Dar es Salaam, the two KNOW City Partners,  the Centre for Community Initiatives, Tanzania (CCI), and Ardhi University, are  examining and operationalising the role of knowledge co-production as a means to  building resilience and pathways for prosperity in low income settlements in the city. 

 

 

The Ardhi University research team are basing their investigations around the three pillars of governance, poverty, and infrastructure services particularly in two low income settlements, Hanna Nassif and Sandali

 

They are exploring the equity impact on two low income communities of previous government-led donor supported urban upgrading projects, including land use management, infrastructure investment, livelihood support, and community participation. 

At CCI, the team are developing knowledge and action co-production pathways for building resilience and urban equality with a focus on sanitation, solid waste management and risk reduction. They are also developing a community-led Prosperity Index. These activities will support the development of  local learning hubs in the settlement of Vingunguti, and an urban learning hub with communities, academics and government officers from the municipality and a range of departments and utilities across the city and beyond.
