Oxford Programme for
the Future of Cities The Flexible City: rethinking the urban to face future challenges
Housing stories in peri-urban areas of Dar es Salaam.
Housing remains one of the most important challenges associated to the transformation of African cities. In the last decade, the demand for adequate and accessible housing has grown exponentially due to the increased number of urban dwellers born in or searching for better opportunities in cities. The Kigamboni Urban Walk is carefully designed to bring out the stories behind current housing challenges and opportunities in one of Dar es Salaam’s most multifaceted peri urban areas. The Kigamboni Urban Walk is organized by scholars from Ardhi University in partnership with the Oxford Programme for the Future of Cities, the Kigamboni Community Centre and the ACTUS Project team.
The Kigamboni Urban walk responds to the call of the Urban October Initiative putting housing at the centre. It is the first of a series of walks and will include several stops and points of interest across Kigamboni.
