New report on Complex land markets in Uganda and Somaliland

The objectives of this research were to understand and explain how complex land markets influence and shape the urban transition in four east African cities - two cities in Uganda; Kampala and Arua, and two cities in Somaliland; Hargeysa and Berbera. In particular, how spatially just or equitable the urban transition is experience for those living in these cities, using land markets, the institutions that govern them, and underlying political economy to frame the research. This report provides an overview of the research methods applied, key contextual issues, and overall findings and recommendations for policy makers.

Spatial Inequality in Times of Urban Transition: Complex Land Markets in Uganda and Somaliland’ is a 30-month research project funded by the East Africa Research Fund. The research project is led by The Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS) in Rotterdam in consortium with the Bartlett Development Planning Unit and IPE Triple Line in London, the Urban Action Lab in Makerere University in Kampala, and the Institute of Research, Heritage Preservation and Development in Hargeisa. Dr. Alexander Jachnow based at IHS is the Principal Investigator and Team Leader with Dr. Colin Marx from DPU acting as Co-Principal Investigator.

Our role was to lead on the spatial assessment component of this two-year project, working with the principal and co-investigators and in country coordinating experts to provide GIS mapping and spatial analysis of the four focal cities.
