    Overview

    This Quick Guide 3 looks at the different forms of land tenure which operate in African cities and examines some of the problems and benefits of these different land tenure systems.

    It discusses how land is supplied, valued, financed and sold in the formal market, how this formal market is failing to make secure, appropriate land available to their cities’ low-income populations, and why the majority of Africa’s urban poor are being forced to obtain land for their housing through informal land markets.
