Cairo by night

In 2014/15, with support from the Department for International Development, the African Centre for Cities at the University of Cape Town carried out a study to explore the extent to which cities in Sub-Saharan Africa are harnessing urban land values to finance city infrastructure.

The research programme generated several reports, eight of which are available here.

Main report:

  1.  Final Report on Land-Based Financing for Urban Infrastructure in sub-Saharan African Cities

Supplementary reports:

  1. Guideline for Cities in Sub-Saharan Africa on Applying Land-Based Financing for Urban Infrastructure Finance
  2. Literature Review on Land-Based Finance for Urban Infrastructure
  3. Project Summary Findings
  4. Sub-Saharan Africa Property Development Overview with Implications for Land-Based Financing
  5. Report on Nairobi Case Study
  6. Report on Harare Case Study
  7. Report on African land and Infrastructure City Scan
