Tanzania’s rapid rate of urbanization has resulted in a high proportion (60%) of people living in informal settlements. It is estimated that more than half of the population (55.40 to 63.12%) will live in an urban area by 2030. The drivers of rural-urban migration are employment opportunities and higher education, as well as rural youths being drawn to an urban lifestyle.
