At the beginning of the 21st century humanity entered the ‘century of cities’ (Kofi Annan) with the majority of the global population living in urban areas. Global urbanisation is one of the most fundamental and most radical changes recently experienced by humanity. With projected urban growth rates of about 4% between 2010 and 2025 Dar es Salaam is expected to become a megacity with a population of more than 5 million inhabitants before 2020 (UN 2010). Rapid urban growth under poverty has outstripped the capacities of planning authorities to cope with the enormous pace of urban expansion.
